Facebook group to help the homeless in Burnley
3:39pm Tuesday 20th May 2014 in News
KIND-HEARTED strangers behind the Help The Homeless movement have set up a new internet group.
‘Love Burnley’ on Facebook is aimed at people in the town who are struggling.
Organisers said: “We’re so overwhelmed by how many people have come together as a community that we’re going to be setting up a group specifically for people in Burnley who go through hard times.
“We’re going to be guardian angels of this area and raise funds for the causes that need our help.”
The project was born from a message posted online by Nelson man Liam Canning, who travelled home during stormy weather in February. Since then, good Samaritans have given food, drink and clothing to homeless people across East Lancashire.
