This "Valentine's weekend" we are sleeping out to help raise funds for homeless people and refugees. One of the UK refugee movement slogans is "Choose Love": a lot of love for fellow humans is already being shared by amazing local workers who support the homeless in our unequal city, and by amazing volunteers and donors in France, Greece and elsewhere in Europe who support people fleeing persecution and war. Please consider donating to help continue these efforts.
