Like thousands of people her age, Sarah English is heading into Perth's Northbridge on a Saturday night.
But English won't visit any bars or clubs, she won't drink one drop of alcohol. Instead the 23-year-old is on a mission to help the homeless.
Every Saturday night English takes volunteers on a walking tour of Perth, exposing the city's homelessness problem.More stories from Today Tonight

Along for the ride is Tony Sage - Perth Glory's well-known owner, a multimillionaire mining magnate and red carpet regular, who's about to become English's 'undercover angel'.
English and Sage are total strangers, who are about to become the best of friends.
Three years ago, as a twenty-year-old, English started Swags Team Perth. Her aim is to provide a life-saving 'backpack bed' to every homeless person in Perth.
The award-winning beds, created by Tony Clark are designed for homeless people who are turned away from shelters empty-handed.
English did the sums and realised that with 760 rough sleepers in the Perth CBD, the beds, at $68 each, would cost around $52,000. Add $3000 for shipping and storage, and her target is $55,000.
"We've raised about $23,000 so far, so we're nearly half way there which is brilliant," English said.
And that's where the 'undercover angel' comes in with a very special surprise offer.Contact details
