I was back on the train last week after some months of driving and I saw those people with outstretched cups again between Ogilvie and the bus stop.

The Streetwise newspaper vendors looked liked an interesting option - they are trying to work. I've never bought the papers before. Anyone got an opinion on that? I started thinking about that.

This was interesting re: doing SOMETHING. I do try to look at them and smile or greet the "cups" - the friendlier ones - and sometimes I have felt, by their response, that's the best thing I could have given them in that moment!

Thanks Yolanda and Arloa, good to see you on video and with some useful thoughts. For a couple of years when they were younger, whenever we went into central London, my kids always tried to take food/practical stuff in to give to beggars on the streets, which I found very moving. Yet, as they have grown up and are now teenagers they have somehow become 'desensitised' to such people. If I'm honest I guess I have too, unless they are very 'in your face' with me. Those of us who are ordained ministers and our families who live next door to our church have the related issue of callers at the vicarage/rectory door - panhandlers who call and expect help, often asking for money. That can be very hard, particularly for family members if I am not at home or they are persistent or aggressive.
