A Stevenage service club has donated a number of essential supplies to Feed Up Warm Up to help rough sleepers as temperatures start to drop.

Past and present members of Corey's Mill Lion Club donated 15 sleeping bags at a drop-in session in Cutty's Lane, Stevenage on Tuesday 10 December.

These gifts will go towards Feed Up Warm Up's winter needs programme, and the Lions are hoping to provide more sleeping bags and other items to keep the homeless warm in the near future.

Past president Trish Newton said: "We want to be involved in community projects which we feel are doing the greatest amount of good for any given situation.

"We want to especially be involved in those that are not supported by the council or government, and the community are showing that they want to make sure that project works well."
