Sleep-out for homeless

Friday 22nd November 2013

Maidstone Greens are planning to sleep rough in the town centre on December 5, to raise money for the new winter night shelter and to raise awareness of the growing homelessness problem in the town.

Stuart Jeffery, Green parliamentary candidate for Maidstone and the Weald, said: “We have been campaigning for the council to take concerted action to provide more support for people who have become homeless and we are pleased that the Maidstone churches have stepped in to provide a night shelter this winter.

“We want to help support the night shelter and want to continue to raise the issue of homelessness, which is why we are planning a sleep-out in the town during the depths of winter.”
