HOMELESS people in Chester can still enjoy a Christmas dinner thanks to the Salvation Army.
The St Anne’s Street branch of the charity is inviting homeless and lonely people in Chester to come for lunch on Christmas Day.
Lieutentant Vicky Owen from the Salvation Army will be helping to provide the festive feast.
“We have capacity to serve lunch for about 50 people on Christmas Day.,” said Vicky.
The Salvation Army are also holding a toy appeal this Christmas.
Cynthia Roe, volunteer and toy co-ordinator at the Salvation Army, said: “We are asking people to donate toys for all ages, including babies and teenagers.
“The toys will then be given to health visitors who will put them together with a food parcel for disadvantaged families who are struggling this Christmas.”
Donations can be dropped off at Superdrug in Chester no later than December 14. The toys need to have the safety kite mark.
If you would like to attend the Christmas lunch, contact The Salvation Army hall on St Anne’s Street or ring 01244 316791 as soon as possible, but no later than December 12.
The Salvation Army will also be singing carols every Saturday until Christmas by the Cross.
