Even though temperatures were sub-zero, St Peters Church in Canterbury was packed on the evening of Saturday 21st January for a programme of poetry and music that was held to raise funds and awareness for homelessness charity Catching Lives. The evening was introduced by Canterbury poet, Derek Sellen and included three readers and a musician. Victoria Field, Katherine Pierpoint and Paul Matthews read from their work and Eduard Heyning provided two musical interludes on saxophones and clarinets.

Vicky said ‘I think the extreme cold brought home to people the reality of sleeping rough and they were extremely generous – we were all moved by the warm responses to the evening’s entertainment.’
Catching Lives would like to thank everyone involved with the evening, and of course all who attended and donated money, for their support of our clients, especially at this cold time of year.
