#IAmNotLost is a campaign that puts warm clothing in the streets for people who need it. Gemma Spearing is doing it in Weymouth and needs your donations.

Love a positive story, me! This is one that I just had to find out more about.

If you've noticed in Weymouth recently, items of clothing (hats, scarves, gloves) tied to benches, chances are you've encountered something special being spearheaded by Gemma Spearing who is on a mission to help people keep warm this Winter. The items are there for anybody to take and use if they need them.

It's part of the #IAmNotLost campaign which you will find trending on Twitter and has been run succesfully in Bristol, overseas and now thanks to Gemma, here in Weymouth where the homless need our support.

Ask yourself, would you want to sleep outside tonight? I'll guess the answer is a very firm "No!". 

I thought this was a wonderful idea so went and met up with Gemma to find out more about the campaign.

Gemma still needs donations of warm clothing. She needs, Coats, Trousers, Hoodies, Jogging Bottoms, Gloves, Hats and Scarves.

Donations can be dropped into The Richmoor Hotel , 146 The Esplanade, Weymouth, DT4 7NP or Gemma is more than happy to collect if you call her on 07907 291228.
