I come into work every day at 6am and a few weeks ago I was taking out cash on Quay Street.
There was a homeless woman on the floor and she looked like she was dead.
I phoned the police and they said someone had already phoned about it.
I was amazed that someone would have rang and just left her there.
The pub has since been swamped with thousands of messages of support, and offers to donate and volunteer. A hairdresser has even offered to visit the pub and cut people’s hair.
Brett said the pub will do more to help the homeless in the future. He told local channel Key 103 News:
I come to work every day, 6 o’clock in the morning and I see the same faces, the same desperate people lining doorways and it’s just getting bigger and bigger and there doesn’t seem to be anything happening about it, and I just thought ‘why not?’
The response has been absolutely fantastic. We’ve had over 3,000 people who want to volunteer and come down on Christmas day.
Landlord Sean Brett says why he'll be opening up the Old Nags Head pub in the city centre for the homeless on Xmas… https://t.co/7ecQInfYJM
