Sarah currently lives in a refuge centre after spending a period of time sleeping on the streets.

The journey of how of she ended up in that dire situation left Ian absolutely shocked.

Sarah told him: “I have MS and unfortunately when I was diagnosed with MS my husband decided he didn’t sign up for a life with MS - so that’s why I am here.”

Fighting back the tears, Sarah said she wanted to use her harsh experience to try and change people’s attitudes towards the homeless.

She continued: “I would like everybody tomorrow morning to just take a look at one homeless person and try and imagine what their journey has been like.”
