Extreme weather conditions often have a way of bringing out the very best in human kindness.

Amidst the clutches of the Beast from the East, a Lowestoft charity is doing all it can to help the town’s homeless community, ensuring they have somewhere warm to sleep and escape the bitter sub-zero temperatures.

Access Community Trust is opening up the Fyffe Centre on Belevedere Road tonight to any homeless people who would like to sleep there.

The facility, which is operated to provide support to vulnerable and socially-excluded adults, will be open from 9.15pm this evening until 8am tomorrow (Thursday, March 1) morning.

Access’ regular soup kitchen has been running as usual today from 5 to 7pm at Bridge View Day Centre, while staff members from Desmond’s Coffee Shop will be handing out free pizza from 8pm to anyone currently living on the streets.
