Matt Rood, the current holder of the Mr Gay Europe crown, will be helping the homeless and their dogs on the streets of Brighton & Hove this Christmas, and asks people to offer their support by donating goods they no longer need for him to hand out via the Sussex Homeless Support Project.

Matt needs flasks, camping gear, sleeping bags, blankets, rolling mats, warm clothing, jumpers, socks, toiletries, dog blankets and dog treats.

You can take your donations to the Sunday Kitchen at the Clock Tower every Sunday between 1-3pm, where the 15-20 regular volunteers from Sussex Homeless Support will distribute them, along with Matt, to those in need, and where the homeless can get something warm to drink and eat.

You can also drop off your donations at the project’s offices at Unit 7, 196 Old Shoreham Road, Hove.
