Centre for homeless in Peterborough faces closure

The centre says the funding cut comes at a particularly bad time

A day centre run by a charity for the homeless in Peterborough is facing closure unless it can find £60,000.

St Theresa's, which is visited by 100 people every day, has lost funding from NHS Peterborough and the city council.

It said concerns had been raised that its base, a former school in Manor House Street, may be the wrong location.

The charity's centre for homeless families closed in 2008 due to a lack of funding.

The centre provides food, clothing, laundry services, showers, health-related activities and counselling.
