A Weston-super-Mare supermarket has handed money to a new homelessness charity to bring Christmas to the town’s most vulnerable people.
Asda, in Phillips Road, has presented Victoria’s Kitchen with a £500 Christmas grant.
The money will be used to host a festive lunch at Victoria Methodist Church, in Station Road, on December 21.
Asda community champion Clare Virgo presented the cheque to project manager Pat Cocking and her team of volunteers.
Victoria’s Kitchen opened for business last month and feeds the homeless, disadvantaged and vulnerable every Thursday.
The service provides a home-cooked two-course meal, as well as facilities and a place for people to meet support workers and other charities to ask for advice and help.
The donation will be used to serve a full Christmas lunch with all the trimmings to 85 guests, followed by pudding and entertainment.
