Greens to raise money for night shelter

8th November 2013
Maidstone Greens are planning to sleep rough on 5th December in the town centre to raise money for the new winter night shelter and to raise awareness of the growing homelessness problem in the town.

Stuart Jeffery, Green Parliamentary Candidate for Maidstone and the Weald: "We have been campaigning for the council to take concerted action to provide more support for people who have become homeless and we are pleased that the Maidstone churches have stepped in to provide a night shelter this Winter. We want to help support the night shelter and want to continue to raise the issue of homelessness which is why we are planning a 'sleep out' in the town during the depths of Winter."
