Easter on the streets.
Easter is often like Christmas. A family time, when the city shuts down for the day and most of us retreat into our homes for good food, company, warmth and lots of indulgence. Very hard to be homeless but society does at least reach out to the street sleepers.
Easter Sunday is no different. The streets are empty, shops shut and homeless men and women are left behind – their loneliness and isolation felt even more strongly than normal. Very, very few people reach out though.
We’re on it! Easter eggs, hot food, laughter and company is our mission today.
Tonight’s food is a hot roast turkey meal with veg and gravy. Roast dinners are very liked amongst our friends living on the street.
