We went over to London and did two seven hour shifts with Crisis at Christmas working in their homeless shelter. It was a brilliant experience, lovely people both the guests and volunteers. Would definitely do it again.
We were told this at the end of our last shift on Christmas Day.On Christmas Eve just before we closed a guy turned up, we were able to get him some food, but for everything else we had to say please come back tomorrow. So he went back to sleeping spot near a big well known hotel. A chap walked by with his daughters and one of them said 'Dad are you going to give him some money?' The chap sat down next to him and chatted, then said wait here I have something for you in my room. Ten mins later a Ferrari pulled up and the chap opened the door and said to the homeless guy 'if you want jump in as I have booked you a room in a hotel in Victoria for the next ten nights!'
Isn't that amazingly kind!
The homeless guy popped in on Christmas Day to tell us and the chap had invited him to join his family for lunch on Boxing Day!
Just goes to show there are some seriously nice/kind people out there.
Happy 2015 to you all
