The project aims to support the most vulnerable in the community and is working in partnership with Supported Steps, a new community venture that supports people who are homeless or who have been in prison.

Co-founder James Pallister said: “We will be giving out free food bags, warm clothes and toiletries from Belle Vue tomorrow and Thursday from noon until 2.30pm.”

Advice will also be on offer at the events.
