November 5th 2015

On 5 November, the names of 192 people who died homeless over the past year were read out at the annual service of remembrance at St Martin- in-the-Fields. Friends from the street and from the services they used told stories about them, and humour was mixed with the sadness. And The Choir with No Name and Streetwise Opera, who get better with every passing year, rounded off the service with touching and rousing songs.
