The Billy Chip Foundation was set up in memory of Billy Abernethy-Hope to encourage people to support the homeless.

A ‘Billy Chip’ is a token which anyone can buy from participating outlets and give to a homeless person. The ‘chip’ can then be exchanged by the homeless person for a hot or cold drink.

Most of the food and drink outlets currently participating are around the Bristol and Bath area where the foundation is based but the aim of this fantastic initiative is to spread the word and encourage the generosity of the public nationwide.

Billy Abernethy-Hope was a young ambulance driver who came up with the idea of the ‘Billy Chip’ after working voluntarily with the homeless. Unfortunately, Billy died before being able to see his idea take root and flourish.

Julie Glynn, founder and director of Glynns Solicitors, is a trustee of the Billy Chip Foundation and a strong supporter of the charity’s aims. Last summer Glynns also supported Fest-a-Bill, a vibrant musical event in Billy’s memory, raising funds towards the launch of Billy Chip.
