People are ‘desperately’ needed to work night shifts for a homeless charity this Christmas.

The Comfort and Warmth charity opens a shelter each year in the town to ensure people who are less fortunate are kept off the streets and receive a meal over the festive period.

This is the 28th year it has carried out the initiative and it will be opening up a shelter at St Paul’s Church in Walliscote Road.

However, more people are needed to help with the scheme.

Committee chairman Jon Codd said: “We are desperate for volunteers to come forward and offer their help to the shelter this Christmas.

“We particularly want two volunteers for the night shifts.

“Two people are needed from 11pm through the night until 8am, for both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.”

Volunteers keen to help can call him on 01934 813139 or on 07766 448889.
