For the past few years I've joined those who, like me, are concerned about the numbers of our sisters and brothers who are homeless in one of the wealthiest cities in the world, in spending a night outside. Over those years you have helped me raise almost £28,000 for the project. The ROBES Project is both simple and effective and Southwark Cathedral is delighted to be a partner in its work and to be the venue for the sleepout.
As someone who likes a good bed and my creature comforts I can't say this is a comfortable way for me to spend to spend a night. But I'm sure the people I pass on the streets would also like a good bed and a few comforts. This can be a way back into a better life for them.
Thank you for your support - it means a huge amount to me, it means even more to those who will be the guests of the project.
