Let’s spread some street warmth to homeless people across the country

[Image: Sophie Smith-Holland/Twitter.]

This is brilliant and I’m delighted it seems to have started in my city of birth, Bristol:

The idea – leaving hats, gloves and scarves out for homeless people to use in order to keep warm – is excellent.

Can we start a fashion, here?

How about if people in every town and city where others are homeless put out warm clothing for them to use?

It might really stymie the Tories – who are undoubtedly hoping the cold snap will deprive more rough sleepers of their lives.

    any way drop ins shelters etc have walk in and garb clothes banks as well csan get a new set everyday and some really good stuff and also means nobody else will nick them and you can send proper things like COATS and dont forget the tampons and sanitary towels

    COMPREHENSION – ZERO

    I actually like the idea of a BUGOUT BAG which soldiers have all the essentials and camping and sleeping bag in smallest design but best in all terrains packed into just one knapsack bag

    i wed like to ask money and help from services to design and make bugout bags for homeless

    who the fk is soo stupid as to knit a milti coloured crochet blanket for sleeping in the rain and wet soaked in minutes might as well wrap them up in double pneumonis

    How about a crowd-fund on Facebook and Twitter which would help StreetLife’s purpose to give homeless people a chance to get off the streets for good?

    Thought what a brilliant post until I saw the ridiculous comment “stymie the stories so people sleeping rough will lose their lives”! What a stupid comment by someone . I’m neither stories or Labour or any political party but to suggest any human being in any political party WANTS a person to die is unbelievable. For that only I’m not supporting your cause until that statement is retracted.

      Are you serious?
      Consider the covert genocide of sick and disabled people being enacted in the UK every day by the Tory-controlled DWP.
      Tories DO want people to die. They just don’t want any solid connection between themselves and the deaths.

    I joined Streetlink to report local rough sleepers and I was blocked quite deliberately, the screen went black and then I was told that there was an error in my information. Just thought you need to know so you can warn others.
