A couple from the Bournemouth area were doing their Christmas shopping in the square where they ended up helping a homeless man in need of shelter.
Jade Horsted, 25, and Harry Finister, 27, had stopped in a coffee shop where 31 year old Majid approached them asking if they would buy him some soup, which they kindly did.
Harry described the man having ‘crutches and a broken leg which was in a medical boot, and he was telling us he also had gangrene and epilepsy’. Majid then went on to ask the couple if they would search their phones for any homeless shelters nearby, to which they couldn’t find anything.
Why can’t the churches open up at night for these people?
Harry then went on to say, ‘They’re not easy to find. Anything I managed to find was only open on weekdays. There was no advice as to where there were homeless shelters. Why can’t the churches open up at night for these people?’
The couple shared their experience and thoughts on facebook, to which they reached over 500 shares.
Jade said, ‘We weren’t expecting to receive so much attention. I’m really happy though, people are definitely agreeing that something needs to be done about it’.
