A huge ‘well done’ to the Jamie Reynolds, Ali Reece and the team at Birmingham’s Christmas Crisis who I went to see at Great Hampton Row this morning. Teams of vounteers have been working round the clock to give some of Birmingham’s homeless somewhere warm to sleep, hot food, some Christmas prezzies and some seasonal cheer. There were, quite frankly, an incredibly inspiring lot who have puts in hours and hours of work for others.
Like a lot of charities, the Crisis team have had more volunteers this year. I was talking to the Daily Mirror about ths idea today. Quite frankly, anyone who argues Britain is broken should come and see what’s some of our incredible ‘giving generation’ are upto. There’s nothing broken about the spirit I saw this morning.
