Sayd Ahmed, who runs Pappadams Indian Takeaway in Milton Road, and his team provided breakfasts, hot drinks and lunches at Somewhere To Go.

The charity is based in the Boulevard and offers food and support to those sleeping rough on the town’s streets.

Somewhere To Go’s day centre manager Joan Eales said: “We are very grateful for this response to those who are struggling with life.

“Last year, Sayd provided meals in this way and our clients said it was like going out to a good restaurant to eat, something that they don’t have the resources to do.

“On behalf of our clients who are so appreciative of these gifts and our team here at Somewhere To Go, I would like to express my thanks to Sayd and his team for their compassion and kindness.”

Around 60 T-shirts were also handed out by Mr Ahmed and his team to celebrate the start of the Eid festival.
