Help is on hand for vulnerable people in Scarborough as The Salvation Army adapts its regular outreach to work within government social-distancing guidelines to provide emergency support.

Major Steve Noble, who leads the church with his wife Captain Angela Noble, said: “Every Thursday we offer an opportunity for vulnerable people to drop into the church for a meal and to make sure they aren’t isolated. Some of our guests are homeless, some are facing personal challenges or experiencing isolation, others simply haven’t the facilities or ability to cook a meal.

“While we are unable to welcome our guests into the hall as usual, we can provide a cooked meal for people to take away and offer a friendly greeting, as well as continuing our regular emergency food provision, too.

“Our supermarkets, especially Morrisons, have been very supportive, as have two holiday parks, in providing food. The Salvation Army remains here for people who are facing particular challenges in these days.”
