Cook­ing a feast for the home­less

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

KIND-HEARTED peo­ple cooked up a feast for the home­less in Peter­bor­ough.

Mem­bers of Peter­bor­ough In­ter-faith Coun­cil came to­gether to cook a curry at the Peter­bor­ough Streets day cen­tre for home­less peo­ple, in Ad­der­ley, Bret­ton.

They were joined by the Mayor of Peter­bor­ough Cllr Paulathacker, who helped serve up the meals. Cen­tre man­ager Denise Lewis said: “It was re­ally lovely. Be­tween 40 and 50 peo­ple came for din­ner and they all got three cour­ses.

“They even made the staff sit down and we were waited on as well. It is ob­vi­ously very im­por­tant for peo­ple to get a good hot meal at this time of year so this was par­tic­u­larly good.

“Our clients seemed to re­ally en­joy them­selves.”

But the group’s gen­eros­ity did not end there. Mem­bers also do­nated a cheque for £400 which was grate­fully re­ceived and has gone to­wards pay­ing for a new wash­ing ma­chine.

The cen­tre is now gear­ing up for Christ­mas when it will team up with Bret­ton New Hope Min­istry church to pro­vide Christ­mas din­ner for the home­less.
