A 72-year-old granny from Portsmouth was recently spotted feeding the homeless with hot soup to help with the cold. Upon inquiry, it was gathered that she does this six days a week.


A septuagenarian and pensioner, by name, Diana Clarke, has become the talk of the internet after a video of her performing a selfless act went viral on Facebook.

She was seen feeding two homeless people with soup during the bitter cold, an act that has been rightly referred to as one that “restores one’s faith in humanity.”

A plumber, Charlie Franks, spotted this kind act and did not hesitate to make a recording, which he then shared with the world.


He posted the video with the caption:

“This absolute legend of a lady, deserves all the shares that she gets on social media, I just filmed this in Albert road ‘Southsea,’ and by the looks of it !?, she makes a load of soup and goes out to hand it to the homeless !! My faith in humanity is restored, let’s make her famous!#pompeysouplady. ?”


It didn’t take long before the video started getting lots of views and shares. As at the time of writing this post, the number of views is over 200,000, and it has been shared about 5000 times. It has equally gathered tons of comments.

A Facebook user, Hannah Goodall commented:

“Share everyone, she is amazing and one of the most selfless people I know. She’s not on Facebook but her daughter, son in law and grandkids are, and I’m sure they will pass on this admiration. If only we had more people like Diana. Xxx”


Clarke’s daughter, Katie Elizabeth, revealed that she does this as a volunteer at a nearby church, the St. Swithun's Church, and Franks intends to help raise money to support her cause.

In a related story, a “Good Samaritan” in Chicago, who chose to remain anonymous, paid the hotel bill of 70 homeless people in an attempt to save them from the terribly low temperatures.

These people had been displaced from a homeless encampment after a propane tank exploded. And the person did it not for glory but the kindness of heart, to give the homeless a chance at surviving the cold.
