Merry Christmas to you all …

A slightly different post this one- not writing based- for a change. Below is a pic of the Intouch Foundation out in Bradford city centre last night feeding the city’s homeless out of the amazing food van. (It’s rather like a Tardis!)

Yesterday, my husband, Andy, volunteered, helping to serve over 80 meals – he’s the one right at the back, beaming, with the beanie on.

Later this holiday, he and I are doing a shift for Innchurches. I’ve come late to this type of volunteering; the longest stint I’ve done before was 2-3 years with the CAB in the West Midlands.

But as the numbers of the homeless rise in the UK, it’s an issue I’ve become, both more aware of, and more concerned about.

In Bradford the homeless can access a hot meal every evening of the week, which is remarkable, I think, but is not the case in every city.

To all my blog followers and friends who drop by to read my entries I’d like to wish you all a peaceful, healthy and safe Christmas spent with whomever you love.

    I hope the government would become involved with the tiny house movement which is sweeping America. They create tiny village where homeless people are housed where they are able to get help and help one other too. It’s a shame places like that don’t exist here.
