A group of volunteers has been offering clothing and cooked food every Sunday at Haymarket, Norwich.

Anon Street Team - Norwich cook meals at home and transport them to Haymarket, where a two course meal and a drink is provided.

The volunteers are also the only group in Norwich to provide a streetwalk service, whereby a shopping trolley filled with meals is pushed through the streets, enabling the group to access those most in need.

On top of this, the group also accepts clothing donations which volunteers distribute amongst the homeless.

Sophie Gadsby, of Wymondham High Academy Sixth Form, said everybody involved with the project was a winner.

She said: “I have been doing this for a couple of months now and knowing that just a few hours a night has helped the lives of others is an indescribable feeling. Everything that we do is so worthwhile and fulfilling.”
