A REDDITCH charity is providing Christmas dinners to more than 300 homeless people in Birmingham this Saturday, December 15.

The town’s Conference of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a group of volunteers based at Mount Carmel Roman Catholic Church on Beoley Road.

For the last eight years they’ve been working with, and supporting, homeless people in Birmingham.

Four years ago they held their first Christmas Dinner for the homeless of the Second City.

This year’s event is being held at St Luke’s, at 41 Gas Street, Birmingham from midday.

To make the event a special occasion live music has been arranged as well as haircuts and gifts for all.

All of the fundraising and organising of the event has been driven by the Redditch Conference backed by a number of private companies which have donated food and non-alcoholic drinks.


Weddings, Birthdays, Bereavements, Thank you notices, Marriages and more.
