A HOMELESSNESS charity is singing the praises of a Redditch group after members donated bedding and household supplies.
Redditch Operatic Society chairman Tony Jay and secretary Jean Chalke met project manager Gill Groom at Redditch Nightstop, a charity which helps young people who are homeless or are at risk of becoming homeless, to hand over goods worth £200.
Mr Jay said: "One of the society's objectives is to assist charities with donations. Being a Redditch company, we particularly like to support local good causes.
"Redditch Nightstop seemed like a most worthy cause, it is not only based in our town but supports young people which, in our own way, we especially like to do."
Volunteer co-ordinator Sharon McCall added: "Donations like these ensure we can provide starter packs of goods to young people who otherwise would not have the basic necessities we take for granted."
The charity is also looking for support to help spread the word about its work by appealing to businesses to sponsor or part-sponsor a billboard advertisement on the side of the building at the entrance to Redditch Railway Station.
Anyone interested should contact project manager Gill Groom on 01527 66036.
