Local chippy gives homeless a hot meal

A Gloucestershire chip shop made sure 50 homeless people in Cheltenham had a hot meal, when it donated portions of sausages and chips.

Gold Cup Chippy, based in Wymans Brook in Cheltenham, worked with local charity Open Door and set up on the high street in the evening, where it gave out hot food and drinks to vulnerable people.

Generous customers donated towards the costs of the meals, while staff, their families and others volunteered their time. Customers and staff also donated everything from blankets to toiletries to distribute to the homeless.

Gold Cup Chippy also donated food to the homeless just before Christmas.
