A Wisbech bar/diner is offering free hot drinks and meals to the homeless during the cold weather.
Coyote Bar and Diner, based in Union Street, announced that they will be looking after the town’s homeless people, especially as the weather is set to get even colder.
The diner released a poster on their social media pages and asked the public to tell all of the homeless people they see to come down to the diner.
Free drinks and hot meals will be available to homeless people between 4pm and 5pm on Friday, February 1 and Saturday, February 2.
Betty Cunningham, diner manager, said: “We have had a really good reception already. I realised something had to be done when I got so cold one night.
