A HOMELESS charity has restarted its regular Sunday outreach sessions.

Knight Support suspended the programme due to the coronavirus lockdown, but as restrictions have eased, volunteers are back helping those on the streets.

Secretary of the charity Andy Babbayan said that a dozen people turned up at their first outreach since lockdown earlier this month, benefitting from donated clothes, toiletries and food.

He said: “Numbers will swell again to a predicted 60 to 80 within the next month as the message gets around that Knight Support outreach is up and running.

“It was great to get the team back together and to be back on the streets making a difference.

“Some familiar faces were very relieved to see us back.”
