A night shelter providing homeless people in Burton with a warm bed for the night is to be set up this weekend as winter weather threatens to send temperatures plummeting. Paul Laffey, chief executive of YMCA Burton, said: "Our outreach team have been going out on to the streets for more than a year meeting rough sleepers, offering support, warm clothing and inviting them in to use our homeless facilities at Reconnect. We can only accommodate 31 people at Reconnect and are constantly full. The Night Shelter will be open to receive rough sleepers from 8pm to 10pm each night from December 2 and will run until the end of March Guests will be given a warm welcome, provided with food and friendly volunteers to talk to.

Now, Burton Hope has been set up to provide food collection points where none currently exist and identify other gaps in care. Mr Anderson took some volunteers into the town to donate food and clothing to those forced to camp outside, and revealed photographs of the men he spoke to and their sad surroundings, littered with rubbish and dirt.
He said: "We met a man there.
He was freezing. We gave him some trousers and he changed in the road he was that cold. You can see their hands are black ingrained with dirt.
A lot of people are struggling. There are people working on zero hour contracts and sometimes cannot afford to pay rent or eat.
Now a meeting has been held to set up Burton Hope after the photographs Mr Anderson posted on Facebook gained much attention and led to donations. He said: "We have set up the group to help the homeless and those in need.
For example, there are soup kitchens operating Monday to Friday at lunchtime so our homeless do not get regular food at other times. We had groups going out at the weekend to take food, clothing and other essential items to our homeless Burtonians.
We are hoping to establish rounds to ensure the homeless know there is food available for them. Mr Anderson added: "Around 25 people attended the meeting.
The Trent Valley Way acts as a spine along the river connecting communities as well as taking in sites of cultural and heritage importance and places to visit.
Many others wanted to attend but had work and other commitments. We have a very enthusiastic group of volunteers chomping at the bit to get started.
More volunteers are still signing up.

Additional volunteers will arrive at 6am and prepare breakfast for those sleeping over and the church hall will be vacated by 8am. With funding support from Consolidated Charity of Burton upon Trent and local churches, the YMCA has been able to appoint two temporary night staff to oversee the project. The hall appears to meet the needs for this great community project.
We are very thankful for all the volunteers that have so far come forward. There is a further need for more volunteers to work overnight at the project.
