A VOLUNTEER from Gloucestershire Nightstop pitched his tent in the centre of Stroud to raise awareness about Poverty and Homelessness Action Week on Saturday, February 1.

David Toland,who volunteers for the charity, which provides emergency overnight accommodation for homeless young people aged 16 to 25, set-up his tent in King’s Street between 10am and 2pm.

The stunt was part of a series of events organised by Gloucestershire Nightstop around the county to mark Poverty and Homelessness Action Week, which ran from Sunday, January 26, until Sunday, February 2.

A steel band concert night in aid of the charity was also held in Nympsfield Village Hall on Sunday, February 2.

Gloucestershire Nightstop will help young people who have nowhere to stay by providing them with safe, warm temporary accommodation and in some circumstances will also help to find a long-term solution to their problems.
