Homeless coming in from the cold in Daventry

CHURCHES in Daventry have joined forces to make sure homeless people have somewhere to sleep this Christmas.

The six churches have formed the Daventry Winter Warmer Project to house people left outside in the freezing cold.

The idea came about after Daventry District Council launched its rough sleeper and severe weather emergency protocol earlier this year and contacted the churches for help in the current cold snap.
