I've watched the homeless situation get so much worse over the last 10 years, not just in London but wherever I go across the UK. It's absolutely heartbreaking and I wish I could do more.

I saw your post on Reddit and knew I had to donate. I wish I could do more! When I return to living in the UK, I am thinking of volunteering in some way. Good luck with the run and I hope it helps give a few homeless people a reason to smile
