“But you were always a good man of business, Jacob,’ faltered Scrooge, who now began to apply this to himself.
Business!’ cried the Ghost, wringing its hands again. “Mankind was my business! The common welfare was my business; charity, mercy, forbearance, benevolence, was all my business. The dealings of my trade were but a drop of water in the comprehensive ocean of my business!”
― Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol
This Christmas don’t forget those who sleep on the streets!
More than 4,000 people sleep rough on the streets of London every year. They come from every walk of life, and many of them want to find work.
Homelessness begins when something bad happens and you don’t have family to support you.
It can happen to all of us!

Rough sleeping is harmful and dangerous – the average age of death is 47 and around eight in ten rough sleepers were victims of crime or anti-social behavior in the last year.

Many people begging have somewhere to live – giving to charity means your donation will provide real help for rough sleepers.
