Today, homeless people were given meals at the Community Cafe for Manchester's Homeless held at Cross Street Chapel in Manchester City Centre.

Twenty volunteers from Salford, Manchester, Tameside and Liverpool helped to serve a choice of curry dishes and chicken and chips, while guests could also choose from a variety of clothes and toiletries.

"This is our regular community homeless cafe and we're sponsored this month by KFC, which is our permanent sponsor, and Zouk Tea Bar and Grill which has sponsored us for the second month" said Emma Mohareb from Party Protest Manchester which hosted the cafe alongside Salford Manchester Street Support.

"We've had people coming in here and then we also take food out onto the streets so probably up to one hundred people get fed" she added "Next month, we're going to be doing a Christmas dinner with chefs coming in from Styal, and we'll be approaching companies to sponsor Christmas events with tracksuits, coats and gloves."

Angela Barratt, from Salford Manchester Street Support, who was also out distributing Calvin Klein socks to the homeless yesterday (see here), implored more companies to get involved; "Everything donated goes directly to those on the streets" she explained.

FURNESS QUAY DEVELOPER PROVIDES NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING ON HUGE APARTMENT SCHEME

Salford's planning scandal is to go up another gear this week when an application by developer De Trafford for 421 apartments in blocks up to 27 storeys high on the site of Furness Quay is considered by councillors. Thanks to Salford City Council policies, the developer will be providing no affordable properties, while, through 'viability' assessments it is set to avoid over £1million in planning fees.

Meanwhile, the English Cities Fund (ECf) is continuing its secrecy in relation to new apartments and an office development around Chapel Street and New Bailey.
