About Have a HART
Shirley, our founder, had a natural instinct for wanting to care for those less fortunate. Raising a large family had taken up most of Shirley’s time. With her children all grown up she found she now had time on her hands. Shirley decided to use this time go out with the support group “The Red Bag”.
I went out with Chloé (from The Red Bag) and I knew from the minute I stepped into Birmingham City Centre I had found my passion. I spent time chatting to “friends on the streets”. It was Midnight when I left. I couldn’t sleep that night, my mind ticking over, thinking I need to do more to help. -Shirley.
Shirley continued with The Red Bag Sunday trips for several more weeks but decided she wanted to make additional visits on other days. Initially going out with her daughter, Robyn, and friend, Amy, Shirley soon found other people wanting to join her.
