Preston Woman To Feed Homeless People Breakfast on Christmas Day

Jeanette Dunkley will be taking her butty van out to Corporation Street on Christmas with bacon and sausage barms for the homeless.

She will be there from 7 am till 10 am with her grandson Robert and friend Steve Green and will also be serving tea and coffee for those in need.

Homelessness is an increasing issue in the UK, according to housing charity Shelter, At least 320,000 people are homeless in Britain.

It is an especially important issue for Preston, according to, Preston has the highest amount of homeless in the county.

Shelter also states that housing prices could be a factor for the amount of homeless,

“The average house price in Preston is 5 times the typical salary, with the average private rental costing £500 per month.”

Jeanette is giving up her Christmas morning because she said she felt sorry for the homeless of Preston and wanted to do something for them.

She will also have some food for any dogs.
