The Beast from the East strikes the UK

As this cold snap hits the UK and the ‘Beast from the East’ strikes, you and I know better than anyone that it’s cold and bitter when you step outside. Temperatures today have barely got above 2°C

Working with the rough sleepers of Portsmouth they have told us less people than usual are stopping because it’s so cold.

Please, if you do one thing today, tomorrow or throughout the week just take 2 minutes, just 2 minutes, to check someone who is homeless is okay. That hot drink you may buy them may actually save their lives.

You can go indoors after your trip home from work to a nicely heated home, or back to the nicely heated office after lunchtime. They can’t. The streets are their home. The only shelter from the wind they have is that provided by a doorway.
