John

Last night was a wet and rainy night, and I am told the weather actually dipped below zero. I cannot even imagine sleeping rough in this weather, yet when I met John, he had no idea where he was going to sleep.

John says he has been sleeping rough for 15 years. The night before he found a spot in the back of a hotel to stay dry. He gathered up some cardboard and wrapped himself in a blanket to stay warm! The freezing weather woke John up long before sunrise, and all he could do to warm up is go for a walk until a day center opens a few hours later.

Imagine living on the streets in London’s cold and rainy weather? No one should have to live like this!
