In November 2013 I did a sponsored night on the streets for the Derby homeless charity, Padleys. For every person that sponsored me, I also drew something of their choosing. So I spent the night drawing over 40 pictures for the kind people who sponsored. I was able to raise an incredible £472.39 for Padleys.
It was difficult to draw with gloves on but fortunately the weather was dry. It was still uncomfortable and I'm incredibly fortunate to have a home to return to after the night on the streets.
