The Salvation Army is appealing for anyone who has a few hours to spare to help rough sleepers staying at their winter night shelter.

The shelter, in Clements Road, Ilford, opened yesterday and organisers said although they have had hundreds of people volunteer, but they desperately need doctors and dentists.

Naomi Clifton said: “Life on the streets really takes its toll on the body but it can be difficult to access services when you don’t have a stable place to rest your head.

“While our guests are staying at the shelter they are better rested and more able to make good decisions about their health.”

If you would like to volunteer, even for a few hours, please contact
