Smiths News has launched its annual Pass It On appeal to help homeless people across the UK.

Over the last four years, the campaign has helped over 4,000 homeless people, across 15 different cities, providing over 40,000 items of new and pre-loved clothing, sleeping bags, hot drinks, toiletries and, just as importantly, a friendly face willing to listen to their story.

This winter, the homeless in the UK are particularly vulnerable. The social restrictions that Covid-19 has created are limiting the number of people visiting our cities, and in turn the number of people providing acts of kindness to a homeless person.

Smiths News CEO Jon Bunting said: “In January and February 2021, we will again be hitting the streets in 10 locations, but because of Covid the focus will be revised this year. We will not be providing pre-loved clothes but rather a select package of new items that will directly make the most tangible difference. These will include sleeping bags, toiletries, thermal underwear, large coats, hot drinks, and snacks.

”Thank you for any help you can give. You would be amazed at the difference your kindness will make.”
