Crayford Arrows can’t play any games due to the snow, but they can still open their doors for those that need shelter most.

The football club has opened its facilities for the homeless to provide food and shelter from the sub-zero temperatures, but they still desperately need bedding.

Sally Cudmore is a campaigner for the homeless and she posted on Facebook about how she wanted to do something for rough sleepers caught in the snow.

Speaking to News Shopper, she said: “They have been turned away from shelters, people sleeping in car parks in the cold and snow.

“These are people who literally have nowhere to go. We are getting them off the streets and in the snow.”

John Grace, from Crayford Arrows, saw the post and quickly contacted chairman Paul Oliver as he knew they had the facilities to help.

Mr Grace said: “At the football club we can’t really play over the weekend. I put the idea towards the chairman and he jumped at the idea for the club to give back to the community.

“The club is not being used and we have got the heating and the kitchen and showers. I’m going there now to open the place up and hopefully give the homeless a nice warm place to sleep.”

Sally and other volunteers will be cooking food for the homeless, and even have organised buses to bring them there, but they desperately need bedding and towels.

If you want to donate bedding or towels, or anything else that could help, you can bring them down to Crayford Arrows ground at Perry Street in Bexleyheath.
