On one of the hottest days of the year, Gary Butcher, who runs the Ice Cream Parlour on Norwich Market, has offered the homeless free ice creams and bottled water.
The 54-year-old, who is in his fifth season running the stall, said he enjoyed providing for those who are less fortunate.
'In this high peak season, I tend to give our two to three ice creams to those who are homeless,' he said. 'I am thinking of distributing vouchers to exchange for the cool, sweet treats.
'In order to avoid dishonest people taking advantage of my free water and ice lollies, it is best to only offer this service occasionally'.
Mr Butcher hopes that his kind gesture will encourage people to think more about helping the needy.
