Having taken inspiration from homeless charity Slough Homeless Our Concern (SHOC), superstar Russell Brand will be visiting homeless charity Trinity’s ‘Big Sleepout’ event next week.
The comedian and actor turned political activist has visited Serena Hall, SHOC’s Burlington Road centre, several times over the past few months to check out the charity’s work.
SHOC’s head of service Mandy McGuire said: “We’re excited that he’s supporting us and he’s taking time out to come over.
“It’s really amazing how he feels about some of the work that we do.”
Mandy suggested Russell’s history of drug addiction might be why the homeless charity is close to his heart.
Russell continues to be in touch with SHOC which is a part of Trinity.
The Big Sleepout will take place at the Hillingdon Athletics Stadium on December 2.
