We all know how tough it is to live in London, one of the most expensive cities in the world.
We have all gone through bad accommodations, damp houses, moldy walls - however most of us only did it for a very short period of time, most likely in uni. Nevertheless, it was an uncomfortable experience. Now imagine not even having a roof over your head and having to brave winter alone, on the street.

1 out of 200 people in the UK are homeless.
The number is even higher in the city of London, reaching almost 2/10 people in certain boroughs.

Most of us complain daily about London's living conditions: prohibitive rents, single-glazed windows, moldy walls and minuscule rooms. However, only few know what it really feels like to have to brave the winter on the streets, completely alone.

This is why we are getting together and sleeping rough for a night. Your donations can go a long way in providing someone in need with a roof over their head this season.

Thank you.
