WESTON'S MP has been reunited with poeple he met when he spent time at a homeless charity.
John Penrose invited workers from Emmaus, an organisation where he volunteered for a week earlier this year, for tea at the House of Commons in Westminster.
The group, based in Bristol, helps homeless people by offering them a clean, safe place to live.
In return, users are expected to complete a 40-hour week repairing second-hand furniture and operating a delivery service.
