READING homelessness charity New Beginnings is relaunching its All Night Cafe to provide those in need with a warm place to stay.

The organisation is recruiting more volunteers for the cafe, which will open on April 5 once the winter night shelter closes.

Last year, the cafe welcomed 14 homeless people in for a hot meal and safe place to sleep.

The charity have also added an extra day to its fridge for the community, which saw up to 50 people a day come in to pick up some fresh, free food without needing a referral.

The cafe will be opened in Queens Arms in Great Knollys Street, and volunteers are desperately needed.

The training day for volunteers will take place Saturday, March 23 from 5pm - 7pm at the Queens Arms.

Anyone who wishes to go but can't make it can still register to volunteer, as further training will be available.

Grace Gomez, from New Beginnings, said: "We really want to add a Thursday night to the Friday and Saturday but can't add it without more volunteers.

"The feedback from our first guest was 'thank you for crating a sanctuary for us.'

"The Reading people have been amazing enabling us to achieve all that we have."
