I’m keeping my kit on for The Sudsy Challenge!

I'll be wearing the same set of clothes for three days, shining a light on homelessness and raising funds and awareness to support people doing it tough.

Orange Sky helps to positively connect people doing it tough with access to free laundry, warm showers and genuine conversation.

By participating in The Sudsy Challenge, I will be supporting Orange Sky to ensure they can continue providing their free laundry and shower service to people in need.

Every dollar counts, and I’d love if you could support me as I take on The Sudsy Challenge!

My Sudsy outfit.

Monday 6th Sep

We live on the streets

Friday 3rd Sep

 

We live on the streets

We are homeless

through no fault of our own

we live in the streets

because that is our home

We are hungry and cold.

And some are quite old

Get a job and a wash

We are often told

 

People walk past

And don`t even see

The sad and lonely people

Like my friend and me

We sleep on a bench

Or in front of a door

We have nothing to eat

Because we are so poor.

 

We take handouts

of clothes and food

all from charities who care

whatever  kind people can spare.

"The invisibility of homelessness is the invisibility of poverty"".

"The invisibility of poverty". 

I have been homeless, for quite a while

Having no home has cramped my style

I sit here all alone

With my only friend, the phone

As I sit here I am dismissed

No one even sees that I exist

All I want is for someone to care

With a chat and a coffee to share

I sit here, all alone on the stairs

Waiting for someone, who really cares.

“An ode to our volunteers on Christmas Day”

Tuesday 29th Jun

“An ode to our volunteers on Christmas Day”

 

`Twas the night before Christmas

No washing was done

Then on Christmas morn

There was laughter and fun

Because Orange Sky Laundry

Was doing their run

There were clothes to be washed

And bodies to shower clean

Such a wonderful morning

For our friends on the street

that others have never seen.

Why I volunteer at Orange Sky.

Tuesday 29th Jun
I have been volunteering for Orange Sky for over 4 years and over that time I have met some great people, some have been volunteers at Orange Sky, others through other volunteer groups and some of the best have been our homeless friends.

Thanks to my supporters!
