Help Bristol’s Homeless One Show Feature

Some time ago we received an invite to do a feature for the BBC One Show.
After a visit from the BBC film crew to shoot a short film, our founder and managing director  Jasper Thompson went on the show live on the 16th of July.
Jasper expressed that it was an honour to be invited to the show and that he felt proud to be a voice for Bristol’s Homeless.

Reaching out to Bristol’s Homeless

With this months heat wave reaching the 30s, our outreach has continued to be a vital service for the street homeless in Bristol. As you can imagine; this month our focus has been on helping people stay hydrated and protected from the sun. Thank you to everybody that has donated bottles of water and suncream for our weekly outreach.
We are so grateful to all of our outreach volunteers. Their commitment and dedication is the driving force behind our outreach service, and we couldn’t do it without them.
