The Cloister challenge
"I finally fell asleep around midnight only to wake up at about 1.00 am, the cathedral was quiet and dark and i lay there and started to think.
I was, I hate to admit, scared, disoriented and cold. Because i was tired and cold, I had a little cry and got thinking what life would be like for any person and especially parent to be on the streets.
I have never thought of the homeless in this way or given any serious thought to what it would be like to sleep rough. You have opened my eyes"
