LONDON March 23: Former Croydon Mayor and Present Councillor and Cabinet Member for Economy and Jobs, Manju Shahul-Hameed is setting an example within the UK Malayalee and Indian community and aims to become the leading beacon bearer in calling upon the community all over the UK to support the cause of homelessness.
In a bid to raise awareness on the importance of helping the homeless, for one night, Manju will be giving up the comforts of her home and comfortable bed and will be sleeping rough on a cold hard floor.
Manju is doing the Sleeping Out to help end homelessness for Evolve Housing + Support on March 24, 2019.
Through this noble deed Manju also calls upon her community members in different parts of the UK to take part in the efforts in their own area to raise awareness and funds for homeless people.
Manju says: “Malayalee organisations and individuals can get involved for helping the homeless through getting associated with their local council or charity organisations or make a positive contribution”.
“So many people who find themselves out on the streets are often in that situation through no fault of their own and can quickly find themselves with nothing when they’ve got so much more to give and achieve in life.
Together we can make a difference and give as generously as you can to help homeless people off our streets and into positive, independent lives”.
The funds raised through Manju’s charity deed will go towards helping homeless people off the streets.
Although Manju’s Charity Target was £200 it has gone well beyond and reached nearly £700.
