A TOWYN pub is offering shelter and a slap up meal to some of Rhyl's most vulnerable people this Christmas.

The Wendover pub and restaurant, on Penisaf avenue, is set to open its doors on Thursday to about 10 rough sleepers and homeless people who use The Dewi Sant centre for a three course Christmas Dinner and gifts.

A first for business owner Jas Bagri, the idea evolved from previous years' working with the centre and the belief that there are more homeless people on the streets in Rhyl in 2018.

Jas said:"Last season, we dropped off food to the centre a couple of times, but this year I felt we needed to do more to give back.

"I've noticed over the past couple of weeks more people on the street, and particularly with the weather being so bad we thought it would better to have everyone over here.

"I don't believe in this day and age anyone should be alone at Christmas - everyone is entitled to Christmas dinner."

As well as a three course Christmas dinner, Jas will also be giving presents to each of their guests including thermal scarves, hats, gloves and fleeces.

While Jas has offered to cater for up to 30 people, The Dewi Sant Centre is expected to bring about 10 rough sleepers.

Jas added:"Hopefully if other people and businesses see that not everyone is just money orientated, it might inspire them to do something similar.

"Who knows, if more businesses step up, maybe no one will have to be alone on the streets at all over Christmas."

The Christmas dinner will take place Thursday, December 20 at 4pm.
