Anonymous Gosport girl, 8, buys gifts for homeless people with her pocket money

An eight-year-old, known only as Sophie, saved up her pocket money to donate gift bags to people living in the town's temporary ‘pods’.

The 30 pods were set up at the town's Walpole Park car park by Gosport Borough Council when the coronavirus crisis hit, to house rough sleepers and others in need. Each contains a fridge, microwave, shower and toilet, and came equipped with items the residents might need.

Sophie arrived at the pods with her mum on Tuesday and handed over individual bags containing supplies including toothpaste, a toothbrush, tissues, wipes, shampoo, socks, a snack bar and a bottle of water.
