Leamington project that helps homeless and vulnerable people needs your help spreading Christmas cheer

A Leamington project that helps those who are homeless or vulnerable is appealing for help to spread Christmas cheer.

The Salvation Army Way Ahead Project in Chapel Street provides food, support and services for people who are homeless or vulnerable.

The team at the project have launched an appeal for donations so that they can provide Christmas celebrations at the centre.

They will be providing a Christmas dinner for their guests and they will also be putting together gift bags and need people's help.

On their Facebook post they said: "On 25th December we will be putting on our Xmas day dinner for the most vulnerable individuals in our community.

"For many of us it is the day when families come together and spend quality time & make lots of happy memories, this is not the case for everyone.
