The Kings Cross team had a couple of emotionally tough encounters regulars last night. When Frank got his phone he told us he’d found someone hanging from a tree the night before. He didn’t have phone to call the Police and had to go on a mission to find help. The team also met another of their regulars whose father passed away the previous week. Our team asked both if they needed counselling or similar support and will check in with them on it again tonight.
Franc and Elizabeth have produced a superb 1 min “thank you” film to all our donors, sponsors and supporters. Have a look…they have done such a great job at squeezing a lot of story into 60 seconds.
Tesco has once again delivered for us in a big way with another 50 smart phones on the way fully loaded with ample credit. It really is such a life saver out there. When everything is shut it is the only way for a homeless friend to get in touch with support organisations, case workers, the bank or emergency services.
We also have big orders of sleeping bags and backpacks on the way. We know they are in high demand and they will be here tomorrow or Friday.
