This winter, the homeless of Portsmouth face freezing nights and wet, windy weather as the British winter sets in.
Temperatures last year reached 5ºC at night, with 70mm of rain and winds of 15.7mph and gusts reaching 22.8mph, winter is a very tough season for people living on our streets.
This year, Helping Hands Portsmouth are running a Winter Sleeping Bag campaign. You can help the homeless men and women of Portsmouth stay warm this winter by donating £20 which will buy a 4 season sleeping bag providing warmth to -5ºC.
