Charity offer for town's homeless

People in Yeovil have a chance to buy meals for homeless people throughout the Christmas period.

The Somerset town's night shelter is selling tokens that can be given to the homeless and then traded in for food and a bed for the night.

A similar voucher system has been running at Julian House in Bath for a several years.

A spokeswoman for the charity said the scheme had proven popular with people in the city.
