Osborn and Fox visit homeless hostel

21 December 2017

Ben Osborn and Danny Fox visited a hostel for the homeless this afternoon as part of Nottingham Forest’s new partnership with charity Framework.

The pair met with residents using the facility in Sneinton as well as charity workers who help to run the hostel, handing over dozens of items of warm clothing and serving food to the residents.

The emergency hostel, which has been specially opened as part of the City Council's plan to get rough sleepers into accommodation this winter, accommodates up to 10 people.

Speaking at the hostel, Ben said: "These kind of places are massively important. For us to come down and to try and raise some awareness hopefully will lift the profile of the charity.

"You look at the town centres, including Nottingham, and you see homeless people and, especially in months like December, it is horrible for them. They need support and places like this to try and help them with that first step to get back out there.

"I have been speaking to some of them here and they have been saying how their outlook has changed since they have been here and it is massive for them."
