Monday 5th September
Food, water & clothing run
Served all portions of Country Veg & Black Bean Stew by 8.30pm.
The donations of tracksuit bottoms were welcomed by all, thanks to who donated those. I’d been given a bag of clothing too and the hats from those were hugely appreciated even in this weather.
As we were coming to the end of our run we came across two ladies, one was desperate to get off the streets, she’s a Grandmother, she used to have a house, a job and a family, she possibly is dependant on substances but that’s not the point. She wants to stop drinking and get off the streets, she doesn’t ever want her family to see her as she is now or know her current situation, how sad. These two ladies could also do with ladies bags, she was crying because she had to ask a stranger for clean underwear, I’ll keep politics out of this ‘cos no-one wants a lecture about that but I struggle to accept that we can’t, as a society do more. I’m glad we found her last night, maybe someone could try to get her a ladies bag tonight??
