Chippenham charity Doorway has received a donation of £5,000 from Malmesbury League of Friends. Doorway is a drop-in centre providing wide ranging help for homeless or marginalised people.

MLOF chair David Hide said: “We believe it’s essential that it is able to continue this important work and we are delighted to help in this way.”

Doorway director Jo Kitching said: “We are extremely grateful for this cash boost, which has come at a time when many of our usual funding sources have dried up. This will help secure our long-term presence, supporting for those in our community who are in most need."
