Volunteer Police cadets helped to provide vital support for the homeless in Manchester when they helped to host a special soup kitchen event in the city centre.
The ten cadets spent an evening both making and serving food and drink at the event, as well as taking time to chat with those from the homeless community who had come along.
With the help of Greater Manchester Police Community Support Officers Chris Hatton, Adam Magee and PC Jason Cummings, the cadets also visited local businesses to collect food donations and helped to distribute them to homeless recipients in the local area.

Sergeant Chris Corbett, Development Officer for Greater Manchester Police Volunteer Police Cadets, said: “Each of the cadets put in a tremendous effort during the evening and helped to provide some really important support for the homeless community in Manchester.
“The event and the cadets’ efforts also helped to break down some of the barriers and that can exist between homeless people and the police. We received some very positive feedback during the evening from members of the homeless community and we are now hopeful we will be able to organise further events to provide support in the future.”
