A community project helping homeless people in Ipswich to have breakfast is growing fast but more funding is needed to keep it going.
Hosted by Anna Matthews and Alexia McEwen of La Tour Cycle Cafe, the Home Hubs are held at St Michael’s Community Centre on Mondays and Fridays.
More than a dozen rough sleepers attended the first session and numbers are growing fast.
The sessions, held from 8.30am-12pm, give homeless people in the area somewhere warm to eat breakfast, drink coffee and read a newspaper.
They were set up in the wake of the cycle cafe’s move to a temporary home.

Organiser Ms McEwen said: “We would not be able to offer this fantastic chill out space to eat, drink, relax and make friends if it wasn’t for the generosity of donors on our JustGiving page.
“But more funds are needed if we are to make this a success.”
