A CITY church has received fresh support in its bid to feed the homeless.
Funeral directors, AG Stapleford & Sons, of Fratton Road, Portsmouth, set up a collection of food items from local traders for Buckland United Reformed Church’s soup kitchen. The church relies on donations of fresh, frozen, tinned and dried food to feed up to 50 people on a Wednesday evening.
The trolley at Fratton’s Asda store was emptied on November 12 and approximately £146 of food had been donated.
The stash has now been handed over to the Rev Cliff Bembridge of the Buckland United Reformed Church,
Mr Bembridge said: ‘We are so grateful to Stapleford’s for all of their support.
‘We especially want to thank members of the public who have so generously given food at the collection points.’
