Graham Potter started his holiday season last year with a very compassionate gesture. He slept rough to raise funds for a local charity.
Off The Fence is a charity based in Brighton, that is attempting to decrease homelessness rates in the area and make the streets safer.
“We had an easy version of sleeping rough," said Potter at the time. "But it still gave us an insight into the challenges the homeless community face on a daily and nightly basis.
"Having experienced just one night out on the street, I cannot imagine what it would be like suffering in this way with no idea of what the future holds, or where the next meal might be coming from.”
“There is a ridiculous stigma attached (to being homeless). These are some of the most vulnerable members of our society, and they need our help and support.
“Many are suffering from illness, poor health and it is heart breaking in 2021 that we still see people living on our streets.
"There are some amazing charities across the UK, and here in Brighton & Hove, who do some amazing work.
"It's getting tougher for those organisations, and as we move into the depths of winter when the nights will get colder, with temperatures going sub-zero, I would urge those of you who can, to give them your support this winter."
It is so refreshing to see a manager doing more for the community and helping better the lives of others around him.
