“It’s only because of your support that I’m not dead”

“Dear Friends at UAL

My name’s Terry, and I want to thank you for the way you have previously supported winter night shelters [at UAL Carols and Pancakes in Chelsea Parade Ground].  Because without that support I wouldn’t be here today.

I was helped to get off the streets by a winter night shelter in Great Yarmouth. This was set-up by the Together Network and supported by Church Urban Fund. It was literally a life-line for me.

Watch my story in this short video here

I was one of the lucky ones. But there are many who weren’t so lucky. Over the past year, nearly 500 homeless people have died on our streets. And there are many people right now, on our streets who are cold, and tired, and running out of hope. And I know what that was like… so thank you again for your gifts.”
