A homeless couple out on the streets were trying to beg to get some money for food to eat, but were being moved on. Turns out the man needed surgery but the hospital weren't prepared to do that while they were homeless and out on the streets as he needed recovery time somewhere safe and warm. He was refusing to have the treatment without a roof over their head as he was too afraid to go into hospital and leave his wife vulnerable and alone at night on the streets. We arranged to get some money to them for food and someone in the area local to them spoke with them to their doctor who wrote a letter in to the local council to try to progress their case on the housing list. As it was a very cold weekend, temporary bed and breakfast accommodation was sorted for them so they could at least get warm and rest.
