#SomewhereInSummer – from an idea, to petition, to headline news!

So tonight the #SomewhereInSummer Campaign goes REGIONAL in the Midlands on ITV Central News! This is an amazing achievement for a campaign idea which started off as a little idea, a petition started (which you can sign) to a big commercial broadcaster coming to Worcester and filming myself and others for a news story.

Homelessness happens every hour of every day, of every week, of every year – and it doesn’t discriminate. Statistics from a local hostel have shown that the highest number referrals for the service have been in July so far… July being the start of summer, and a hot month. It is a fact that rough sleeping happens all the time but it is normally broadcast around winter-time when media and charities pick up the pace on it.

Last week I was in the Worcester News, yesterday I was on BBC Hereford and Worcester’s Breakfast Show and this morning I was filming for a news piece going out at 6pm! #SomewhereInSummer has grown to immense proportions and am very proud to have worked alongside St. Paul’s Hostel in Worcester and its very supportive Chief Executive, Jonathan Sutton.

There are many things #SomewhereInSummer is trying to do, and one of those has already happened – to help catapult the wider #HugosEarthquake Campaign into a more public spotlight!

I’m not going to say much more about what was said this morning, as I’m going to let the TV do the work! Any feedback about the Campaign or website is welcome – just drop me an email or Tweet.

If you would like to be involved in the Campaign in anyway or share your own experiences of helping homeless people during the summer, please do get in contact using the form below, it would be great to hear from you!
