My reasons for taking part in Roughtober again – Verity Thomson

“I often think of it this way – nobody sets out to be homeless or to sleep rough. It can happen to anyone and is usually the result of a series of unfortunate events.

Homelessness can affect people of any age or sex, colour or creed. Jesus taught us to never cross the road when we see someone in need, but we should show love and care for everyone – NO EXCEPTIONS!

I am happy to take part in Roughtober again to support the Rough Edges team, who continue to care for those who need it”.
