“The Rucksack Project is a worldwide movement that is slowly gathering pace as people answer the call to do this incredibly simple and heart-warming thing to help those sleeping rough on the streets through the harsh winter months.
This short film from Rucksack Project founder, Mathew follows Amy, one of our volunteers as she takes part in creating a rucksack of essentials before donating it to a homeless person as part of our Rucksack Project Flashmob.

In the small town of Aylesford in Kent, homeless man, Daniel Gauntlett died last Saturday night on the steps of an abandoned bungalow which was due to be demolished. As temperatures dropped to -2C, Mr Gauntlett finally succumbed to the damp and chilling weather.
A local resident told Kent Online “He was a very nice man apparently. He used to ask for money but not for drink. He used to buy pasties from the supermarket. It was so sad. Especially when the houses are empty.”
His body was found by a local passer-by the next morning who spotted his body from the pavement and called the police.
The bungalow where Mr Gauntlett died is due to be demolished, and police had previously been called when Mr Gauntlett attempted to break into the bungalow to find shelter. Mr Gauntlett abided by the law and it cost him his life.
