Homeless people in Sheffield woke to bacon and sausage sandwiches and Danish pastries – thanks to the owners of a Sheffield café and bistro.

David and Nicola Briggs, who own Little Mesters, Kelham Island, arrived at work expecting to serve the food to 100 customers at a breakfast meeting – but the event was cancelled.

So instead of throwing the food away, staff wrapped it up and delivered it to the Archer Project, which runs day services for the city’s homeless from a centre on Campo Lane.

Mr Briggs said: “We were appalled at the thought of wasting so much food, so we delivered it to those we knew would appreciate it. We have done this before, so we knew it would be welcomed.

“It seems such a waste to throw food away when others are in need.”
