THIRTEEN residents from a supported living accommodation block decided to dig deep and help those less fortunate than themselves.

The caring neighbours, who all have a range of disabilities including mental health problems and learning disabilities, live together in a block of flats in Southsea.

Together with staff from CMG, the supported living company that looks after them, they organised a collection to help homeless people.

All the residents and staff members donated £5 to buy food for the homeless. They delivered the goods on Christmas Eve to The LifeHouse, a drop-in centre and soup kitchen, in Albert Road, Southsea.

Lorraine Nash, deputy home manager from CMG, said: ‘They were really overwhelmed. It was brilliant.’
