A CHARITABLE initiative is seeking community support as it prepares to set up shop in Chester.

Shelterwise is looking to set up a retail unit in Northgate Street next week and is calling on residents and businesses to get involved.

The good cause aims to offer both shelter and a foodbank to cater for the homeless and poor.

The charity is calling on people to donate bric-a-brac, clothing and furniture.

People who can help are asked to contact Sammy Lloyd on 01942 215515.
