Story

Laurie’s Legacy is a monthly award presented as part of the Footprint scheme created by St. Martin’s Housing Trust. This award is presented in honour of Laurence, ‘Laurie’, Herring. Laurie had great love for books, films, art and poems. He sadly passed away in May 2021 aged 18.

Homelessness was an issue that was very much at the forefront of Laurie's mind. He would often end up talking to those who found themselves without a home. Laurie had an ability to see beyond the stereotype of 'homelessness', he saw not the situation but the individual, and he truly wanted to get to know whoever he found himself talking to.

With Laurie's Legacy we want to show, and celebrate, the beauty that can arise out of even the most difficult of circumstances, as the footprints on display demonstrate. But also to show that no matter your situation, everyone has something to offer the world.
