Frost by Tim James Brown
As the frost starts its sparkling descent onto the English landscape, it’s important to spare a thought for those who are homeless. Our new film, directed by Tim James Brown, remind us that behind the sparkle lies the uncomfortable truth of homelessness and dangerously low temperatures.
Director Tim James Brown was inspired to make the film for us and said, "Clive Pickering, Diego Arellano and I enjoy using our skills to do some good - it helps us sleep at night. Having worked on Drink Drive, Speed Kills and the National Drug Helpline accounts, we’ve learnt that simple shock tactics don’t work. We wanted to demonstrate the juxtaposition of the beauty of a morning frost and the deadly effects of the winter on homeless people during the preceding hours of darkness."
No one should have to sleep on the streets. The average age of death for a homeless person is 47. We are the only hostel provision for homeless people in Arun, covering a large geographical area.
We need to raise £98,000 to open our new hostel 24 hours a day.
Your donation could be the spark of hope that makes someone feel like life is worth living again.
