Summer is upon us and the weather is getting warmer, the majority of us when it is hot will go out buy suncream and put it on.
However a lot of street homeless and people who spend a lot of time on the streets will not buy sun cream.
At the best of time this section of our community do not manage their health well, and being exposed to the heat and the sun has a further impact on their health.
We are asking people to buy an extra bottle of suncream drop it off at our office

Every year since Liverpool have been represented either by having a coach, mentor or a player.
This year The Homeless FA ran a training center with Everton FC along with others right across the country, Craig Campbell, Richard Jamieson, Curtis Connick, Jessica Brumskill, and Drew Preedy were chosen to play for team England this year. This weekend they travelled to St. Georges Park to complete a 3 day trainning centre, with players from all across the country.
They will go on to play at the Homeless World cup in Amsterdam, Portugal, or one of many other tournaments this year for #Team England.
Once again as well as players, LHFC had 5 coaches and peer mentors who will be at the tournaments with the players.
Once again I think you will join us in congratulating not only the Liverpool contingent but also all the players, coaches and peer mentors who are part of Team England this year.
