A BIG-hearted charity which feeds the homeless living in Bury has been given a boost to support their work.

Beat The Street has been named as The Food Warehouse supermarket's Local Legends for their efforts preparing and serving meals from Angouleme Retail Park.

The charity were specially selected from nominations shared on social media by Bury residents.

Earlier this week the charity's team were welcomed to the new Pilsworth supermarket where they were presented with £250 worth of good to replenish their supplies.

Volunteer Tracey Kean said: “We’re all absolutely thrilled. As a team, we prepare meals three nights a week and we have been since March.

"We definitely feel it’s making a real difference, but our stock cupboard has started to look a little bit bare."

"This has come at just the right time and should last us into the Autumn and Winter,” she added.

The Food Warehouse opened at Park 66 in July and specialises in bulk-buy fresh, frozen and shelf-stable goods from more than 3,000 product lines.

Deputy manager Rachel Bates said: “Beat the Street are making a real impact in our local community, thinking beyond just food to sourcing sleeping bags, clothes and even haircuts for the homeless in Bury. It’s an honour to make even a small contribution.”
