The next food collection and opportunity to donate is coming up in December.

Donations are welcome and encouraged to ensure that homeless people have some food this Christmas.

Pastor Julius Adegbite, of the church in Cranbrook Road, said: "The event was quite good. We have been doing this since 2012 and plan to do it again in December just before the Christmas holidays.

"It was amazing. We met some of the homeless people and the managers, they were so appreciative. It is a privilege if we are able to give hope to people that are homeless."
