Drop-in centres given cash boost
Two Wiltshire drop-in centres have been awarded a grant of £1,000 from the Co-operative Group.

The centres, at Devizes and Trowbridge, are run by the Salisbury-based Christian group Alabaré.

They offer food, shelter and washing facilities to vulnerable adults who are sleeping rough, living in unsuitable accommodation or facing homelessness.

The money, from the Co-op's community fund, will be divided between the centres for housing and catering costs.

The community fund is built up by donations from Co-op members giving all or part of their twice-yearly pay outs from a profit-sharing scheme.
