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.

SALFORD COUNCIL NURSERY CLOSURE GOVERNMENT BOMBSHELL

Star date: 20th February 2018

GOVERNMENT REVEALS THAT SALFORD COUNCIL NEVER ASKED FOR FUNDING FLEXIBILITY

Salford City Council recently announced that it was proposing to close all five of its nurseries. And yesterday Children's Lead Member, Lisa Stone, said that it was "a direct result of Government changes, which reduce the use of Dedicated Schools Grant."

However, this afternoon a spokesperson for the Department for Education told the Salford Star that "Any council that had concerns…could apply to the department for increased flexibility" in the Grant's use. They added that "The Department has not received a request from Salford for increased flexibility…" This is bound to increase pressure on the City Mayor to hold off the consultation on the closures.

Star date: 19th February 2018

SALFORD REDS ACCOUNTS SHOW ALMOST £9MILLION LIABILITIES

New accounts published for the Salford Red Devils show that the company made losses of over £700,000 last year and that it has net liabilities of almost £9million, including the £1million loan from Salford City Council.

Despite the directors insisting that restructures and changes within the club forecast a 'modest profit', its auditor states that the conditions "indicate the existence of a material uncertainty which may cast significant doubt about the company's ability to continue as a going concern".

HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE PACK SAVE OUR SALFORD NURSERIES MEETING

MEETING VOTES TO TAKE ON SALFORD MAYOR IF NURSERY CLOSURE CONSULTATION GOES AHEAD

Despite pleas from Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, and various Labour councillors to work together to save the five Salford Council nurseries threatened with closure, a packed meeting of hundreds of people voted this afternoon to lobby and protest against the Council unless a consultation on the closures is stopped.

"They can't have a consultation to close the nurseries, and ask us to have a joint campaign" said UNISON's Ameen Hadi "The two things can't happen..."
