A POP-UP soup kitchen will open in a Teesside care home to serve hot food and drinks to the homeless.
Mandale House Care Home, on Acklam Road, Thornaby, is opening the kitchen following the success of their food bank appeal in December.
They are working with local initiative Hope for the Homeless North East, launched as a Facebook group by Darlington resident Ray Cook.
Ray has donated lots of bottled water and cans of soup for the kitchen, which will open from 11am to 1pm on Wednesday, 7th February 2018.
The home’s hairdresser is also offering free haircuts to anyone who visits.
The home is also launching an appeal for any sleeping bags, hats, coats, gloves as well as blankets, to provide ongoing support to the area’s homeless.
