A 'lonely and scared' elderly woman who was found sleeping rough on the streets of Manchester city centre with only a duvet to keep her warm has now found shelter - after her photo swept the internet. Volunteers from the Don't Walk Past organisation spotted the shivering woman, who's first name is Anne, sitting on a sheet of tarpaulin on Market Street - the busiest in the city - on Tuesday evening. They said it was unclear how the pensioner ended up there but said she was now off the streets and getting help.
Don't Walk Past member Matthew Hudson spotted Anne along with other volunteers, including Lauren Jones, when they were out giving homeless people hot meals. Ms Jones, 33, who took a heartbreaking picture of the situation, said the woman was offered a place in accommodation outside the city centre, which she wasn't comfortable with.
The group decided to put her up in a hotel for the time being, footing the bill themselves. A 'lonely and scared' elderly woman was found sleeping rough on the streets of Manchester city centre with only a duvet to keep her warm. She was sitting on a tarpaulin, with just a duvet. She was freezing cold. Ms Jones, from Irlams o' th' Height, Salford, offered to help the woman, but had to let her make the decision herself.
She said: 'We made a few phone calls and gave her our card, to let her know we could help. We left at midnight and it was cold and wet. She was still out there.
The picture was really shocking. It broke my heart. She was scared. Lauren and other volunteers, who alerted Manchester City Council, went back out on Wednesday to look for the woman, understood to be in her 60s. Volunteers from the Don't Walk Past organisation spotted the shivering woman sitting on a sheet of tarpaulin on Market Street pictured - the busiest in the city - on Tuesday evening.
The town hall said outreach teams were sent to search for her too. At 5pm, the council said: 'We are working to find her as a priority so she can be found accommodation and offered all the support at our disposal. She said: 'She was very upset. She said she's been moved on from where she'd been. She was in Piccadilly Gardens. She said it was like ''Armageddon''.
We can't force anybody to do anything. It's about gaining trust - we're here if she needs us. Ms Jones and her colleagues are still trying to find out how the woman ended up sleeping rough - and how they and the authorities can help. For now, they're giving her space. Don't Walk Past, which has more than 4, members, was started by Ronny English. People are only a few lost paydays away from being in that position. Don't walk past.
