A Salvation Army residential lifehouse for homeless and vulnerable families will celebrate its 35th anniversary this month.

Catherine Booth House in St Paul’s Road, Southsea, opened in 1980 as a place of relief for those who did not have a permanent home.

To celebrate this milestone, the centre will host an open day on Friday, September 11, from midday.

The event will consist of a presentation, which will display the work staff at Catherine Booth House has done over the years.

There will be plenty for all the family to do including cake stalls, face painting and table top sales.

Guests will be treated to a buffet lunch which has been organised by the staff at the centre.
