A GROUP which provides shelter and support for homeless people in Redditch is appealing for volunteers to help run a Christmas Hub.

Radiate Redditch is appealing for volunteers so it can offer a safe place for rough sleepers to go over the festive period - traditionally a time when most organisations shut down.

The hub runs from Christmas Eve until New Years Day at the Ecumenical Centre from 11am to 4pm.

During the day, it will provide a drop in space where people can go for food/activities/ or just socialise and spend time with others.

A spokesman from Radiate Redditch said anyone who hasn't volunteered and wants to do so can get in touch by searching for the group on Facebook.
