VOLUNTEERS from the homeless refuge Winter Warmth are looking for another venue to host the vital service.Winter Warmth has been run by a group of churches in Weston which take it in turns to host a cafe every night from October to March. Volunteers make sandwiches, soup, tea and coffee for people living on the town's streets and anyone in emergency accommodation.People can pop in for a hot meal and some advice and the teams of caring volunteers offer a listening ear and point people to the right services if they are in need of help.Emmanuel Church, Corpus Christi Church, the Salvation Army, St Saviour's Church, the Friends' Meeting House and Weston Methodist Church all host an evening and provide a team of volunteers to serve the homeless.But there is currently no venue for the service on Friday nights.Mary Passey, who co-ordinates the volunteers for Emmanuel Church, said: "I think it's a really valuable service. People come in for some food or just for some conversation. But we're looking for another church to help out."Winter Warmth sessions are held from 7.30-9pm. Anyone interested in helping out can contact the Salvation Army Citadel on 01934 417125.
