“I knew a guy at work who ended up homeless. It brought it home to me just how short that path can be, between living in a safe, secure and warm home, to being homeless. It really struck a chord.
“Last year, I decided I needed to sort my Will out, and I wanted a worthy charity to benefit. When I looked at Crisis, I liked how they’re tackling the root causes of homelessness.
“I didn’t know how complicated it was going to be creating a Will, and frankly it couldn’t have been easier. The whole thing happened in days.
“During lockdown, I got involved with a local homelessness organisation and I realised kindness unlocks things in other people. In my experience, it’s becoming more instantaneous.
“Collectively we can make a difference. I think homelessness is getting worse, and it’s good to know Crisis is making a difference.”
