An Important Message From BBC6Music’s Liz Kershaw

Every time I go to work on the train I pass the homeless in the car park, underpasses and station forecourt in one of the most prosperous cities in one of the richest countries in the world. I've had a safe and sound sleep in a warm clean comfy bed. I've had coffee and breakfast then a hot shower and clean clothes. I wouldn't be able to do my job if I'd just crawled out of a dirty sleeping bag in the gutter. Or if I hadn't had electricity to prepare on my computer or charge my phone.

Sleeping On The Streets Of London by Author JJ Nortyperson

I recently got chatting with the team at Breakfast In A Bag on Twitter after I saw a tweet from them about their new website. We spoke about the time I was living on the streets of London and how I wished they had been around with their breakfast bags when I was there in 2011, it would’ve saved me crawling to London Bridge for a fish sandwich for breakfast! I have written a number of books now, but not all are available to the general public. I am writing more books all the time. I hope you enjoy reading this exclusive excerpt from The Wanderer’s Diary Book 1.

Breakfast In A Bag “Launch” Press Release

Breakfast In A Bag, a not-for-profit community initiative, has been launched by Enfield’s Michelle Clark to provide free, healthy breakfasts to London's homeless. Funded by public donations with additional support from food manufacturers and supermarkets, the project was conceived by Michelle after she’d identified a huge gap in the services available to the homeless in the city. According to figures released by the Combined Homelessness Information Network (CHAIN) over 7.500 people slept on London’s streets in 2015, a huge rise from 3.673 in 2009/2010. It seems inevitable that there will be a further increase this year.
