Homeless people were given a special treat one rain-swept night thanks to a kind gesture from a fish and chip shop.
Dozens of fish suppers were given out on a cold, wet November night to needy residents thanks to donations to Peterborough Soup Kitchen from the Boundary Fish and Chip shop, based in Market Deeping.
The offer was made after staff at the chip shop heard of thefts at the soup kitchen, which helps dozens of people.
Gerry McCann, assistant manager at The Boundary, said: “We saw the charity had been hit by thieves and wanted to do something to help.
“We cooked about 60 orders for the kitchen, and it seemed to go down well.
“It is important for us to help the community here. We hold regular charity days but this is the first time we have given away food like this.”
Elaine Stapleford, treasurer at the Soup Kitchen, said they were very grateful.
