My story

[lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 12.800000190734863px; line-height: 12px;"[gt]Hello, thanks for visiting my page. Please help me raise money to support the work of St Paul's night shelter for the homeless in Bournemouth. You can sponsor me directly through this page by clicking on the "Donate now" button on the right.[/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 12.800000190734863px; line-height: 12px;"[gt]I shall be spending the night in a sleeping bag (no tents allowed!) in the grounds of BCHA's offices in Bournemouth. Please visit [url=http://www.bcha.org.uk/donations-and-support/bcha-events.aspx]http://www.bcha.org.uk/donations-and-support/bcha-events.aspx[/url] for more information on the event.[/p][p][span=font-size: 12.800000190734863px; line-height: 12px;]This is my first charity event that I will be covering as a photographer. My aim is to provide BCHA with images they can use for their future efforts in raising awareness about homelessness. My current portfolio can be seen at [url=http://stillsthatmove.me]http://stillsthatmove.me[/url].[/span][/p][lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 12.800000190734863px; line-height: 12px;"[gt]"Homelessness is about more than rooflessness. A home is not just a physical space, it also has a legal and social dimension. A home provides roots, identity, a sense of belonging and a place of emotional wellbeing. Homelessness is about the loss of all of these. It is an isolating and destructive experience and homeless people are some of the most vulnerable and socially excluded in our society."(Crisis)[/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 12.800000190734863px; line-height: 12px;"[gt]Some facts from Crisis about homelessness:[/p] [lt]ul style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px 0px 0px 2.083em; list-style-position: initial; list-style-image: initial; font-size: 12.800000190734863px; line-height: 12px;"[gt] [lt]li style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px;"[gt] [lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px;"[gt]On average homeless people die at just 47 years old.[/p] [/li] [lt]li style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px;"[gt] [lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px;"[gt]Homeless people are 13 times more likely to be a victim of violence.[/p] [/li] [lt]li style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px;"[gt] [lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px;"[gt]The main cause of homelessness is relationship breakdown.[/p] [/li] [lt]li style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px;"[gt] [lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px;"[gt]97 per cent of homeless people want to work but only 2 per cent work full-time.[/p] [/li] [/ul] [lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 12.800000190734863px; line-height: 12px;"[gt]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to BCHA.
