A health and wellbeing day for the homeless was a huge success.
North Somerset Council’s health trainer Debbie Stone teamed up with Somewhere To Go to host a day dedicated to helping some of Weston-super-Mare’s most vulnerable people.
Stallholders from Unity, Foodbank and Samaritans were on hand to talk to the service users and offer words of advice and support.
Vets from Beaconsfield Veterinary Clinic provided flea collars, vaccinations and pet food to people’s pets.
Somewhere To Go director, Joan Eales, said: “The day focused on issues which may not be the main priority for someone dealing with homelessness.
“Often they struggle through the day just to get something to eat, have a wash, go to the toilet and get a cup of coffee.”
The charity’s support worker Julie Shannon said: “It was a really productive day and overall we are really pleased with how it went.”
