The 1000 Hours of kindness campaign has hit its target, with just over two weeks still to go and hungry homeless people on the streets of Norwich were grateful for that in last week’s snow.
Volunteers from Gateway Vineyard and its Hope into Action house hit the snowy city centre to give out food and warm coats provided by Mark and Catherine Austin, and chat to those they met.
“We weren’t really expecting to see many people sleeping rough that night,” said Mark, “but we still managed to find people that didn’t want to go into the churches that had opened up, for various reasons. The people we did come across were very grateful we met them.”
Volunteers included Alan Tate (pictured above), Mark Austin, Huggy Knott and Paul Schofield.
The grand total is now a magnificent 1001 hours – so well done to everyone and let’s keep it going.
