A weekend of events focusing on homelessness was held at Norwich Cathedral, including a sleepout, a living library, a book talk and information about how the public can help.
The money was raised over the past twelve months mainly from collecting outside major supermarkets, an effort co-ordinated by Old Buckenham resident Michael Bartlett, who has been a committed supporter of St Martins for many years.
Members of the public are invited to borrow a book from a shelf at an information event on homelessness at Norwich Cathedral on February 8. This isn’t an ordinary book with pages and an index but a person who has experience of homelessness who has volunteered to be part of a ‘living library’.
A cold stone floor in Norwich Cathedral's Cloisters will be the makeshift bed for fundraisers taking part in a unique sleepout on Friday February 7.
The total raised from the annual pre-Christmas street collection for the local homelessness charity was £39,802.
