A Preston homelessness scheme has called on residents to make donations to help the less fortunate over Christmas.


Homelessness prevention scheme The Spires in Maudland Bank is appealing for donations, with those who previously contributed to the Fox Street Homeless Hostel welcome to make further donations.

Community Gateway Association launched The Spires in October. They urged families to spare a thought for Spires residents while celebrating the festive season.
