Some of the country’s biggest artists are helping to build a container village for the homeless.
Artwork from renowned artists went to auction to raise money for container houses for homeless people in Bristol.
The auction was held online and at Here Bristol in Bath Road to raise money for the co-op Help Bristol’s Homeless. The social enterprise converts shipping containers into homes, transforming them from empty crates into one-room houses. The project, which was started by ex-soldier Jasper Thompson, has been seen dozens of people come through their doors.
Volunteers are currently in the midst of refurbishing a bus and containers in Bedminster to provide more beds.
