    Homelessness is a feature of our society, it isn't new and it will probably never go away. Here is a brief story of why I'm doing what I am.

    Some years ago I left a music gig that I'd help to set up and noticed a man in a doorway. I dropped him a few coins, he thanked me. Over the coming weeks this happened with the same man and some of his friends, and graduated to me buying sandwiches and drinks from a local late night fast food outlet. One evening I only had a £20 note in my pocket and the fast food outlet was closed for refurbishment.

    I gave nothing.

    Feeling very ashamed of myself, when I got home I decided to create a voucher scheme that allowed me to leave money at a sandwich shop and hand out the vouchers. This scheme is small and still running in York.

    This process brought me into contact with others, and since then I've done some small fund raising events to help local organisations.

    As an amateur song lyricist/poet I wrote a poem about how I imagined it might feel for someone who is hoomeless. Now after help from friends it has been crafted into a song.

    You can listen to it FREE by following this link https://thepenitentsfeatjesspenn.bandcamp.com/releases

    It is also avialable to download at £0.75p from bandcamp - profits to the sandwich fund

    Money raised from the justgiving page will be used to help those struggling with homelessness via SASH and Acts435 charities
