Plymouth solicitors serve up dinner for homeless
STAFF from a law firm served up an early Christmas lunch at a homeless drop-in centre.
Wolferstans Solicitors nominated the Shekinah Mission as one of its charities of the year, and celebrated with a festive meal at the charity's base in Bath Street on Tuesday.
Rebecca Tamblin, marketing executive for Wolferstans, said: "We thought it would be good to choose the Shekinah Mission as our charity for November and December because of the poignancy of the time of year and the people they help.
"Eight members of staff cooked and served a three-course meal and it went down really well, it was a really good day."

John Hamblin, chief executive of Shekinah, said: "We were delighted to host a team of staff from Wolferstans Solicitors in what has become an annual event in our calendar.
"There are a variety of ways in which local businesses can support us. To volunteer at our drop-in centre for a day is a huge commitment in addition to all the preparation the team have undertaken and is an excellent example of socially responsible business practice.
"We hope the Wolferstans team left Shekinah having enjoyed their day and with an understanding of the challenges and hardships faced by people in the local community."
