ABOUT US

Founded in 2015 by a student and tutor, SHARE aims to improve literacy skills and raise awareness of homelessness through creativity. 

 

Jake Kirkman and Sharon Jones met in an il-lit room in the brand new Bolton Sixth Form College campus and created an 'in-house' writing competition, with the aim of raising awareness of homelessness and promoting literacy skills within the College.

The competition was hugely successful and as a result, an anthology was produced from submissions. In March 2016, the first anthology went on sale for £1 at Waterstones Bolton and The Kitchen on Great Moor Street, with all proceeds from the sale of the book being donated to Bolton Young Persons Housing Scheme. A month later the anthology was officially launched at Waterstones, with special guest and Bolton favourite Dave Spikey in attendance. 

 

Over a year later, the second anthology was released, deciding to focus on female homelessness. The anthology was utilised as an educational resource and a stepping stone to challenging the negative perceptions of the homeless.
