A Scarborough woman who serves food to the homeless has been named as a “local charity hero” in a competition run by the local Cartridge World store.

Nominated by Julie Dixon, Sue Holmes, who runs The Kitchen at Ebenezer Baptist Church, was awarded a luxury Christmas hamper in recognition of her efforts.

The Kitchen is an outreach mission set up by Sue and her husband Bill five years ago. It sees a team of volunteers prepare and serve hot meals to the town’s homeless. The scheme, which is supported financially by the church and donations from church members, runs on a shoestring although noone has ever left without being fed.

Sue has launched an urgent appeal for food and gift donations ahead of The Kitchen’s Christmas dinner for up to 50 people on December 23. To make a donation contact Sue on 07888 998962 or drop them off at the church in Columbus Ravine on the day between 10 and 10.30am or 12 and 12.30pm.
