Every time I walk past a homeless person I feel sad, wondering what has led them to where they are and wish I could help. This sadness follows me more so on cold winter days when I wonder how they survive. The only consolation I have is knowing about the night shelters, they provide an evening meal, bed for the night and breakfast. Most of us take these three things for granted but maybe we shouldn’t and should take a moment to imagine not having them. I know some people will be of the opinion that homelessness is as a result of bad choices but what happened to that person to lead them to make these choices? Whatever your opinion, these are people with thoughts and feelings, someone’s son, daughter, brother, sister, mother, father... please donate just £1 towards helping this fantastic charity
