YMCA/KCAH 'SleepEasy' Homelessness Charity Event ...

Various images from YMCA / KCAH 'SleepEasy' Homeless Charity Event in Kingston, Surrey on 29/1/2011.

167 people, including myself and friends, slept outside in cardboard boxes in minus temperatures to both highlight and experience the awfulness of being on the streets.

Both budget cuts and the economy are affecting funding for all organisations which help people in this plight.

I'm now back home in the warm. Others are not, and it's -2C in London right now.
