The charity provides support for people who are facing personal challenges that range from complex mental health issues, drug and alcohol abuse, to homelessness or feeling alone.

Mr Turner visited the centre as part of his role as an ambassador for the Yorkshire Bank, whereby he visits places across the country to promote social responsibility.

He said he was delighted to be at the centre.

He said: “I think it’s good fun, it’s responsible, and I appreciate how lucky some of us are that our lives have worked out better than others.

“So, give a little back, that’s the whole idea.”

Mr Turner served lunch to a number of clients at the centre and went around and spoke to them.

The lunch, a roast dinner, was provided to the centre by Wellingborough Homes.

Sarah Burge, centre co-ordinator, said it was great that the chef visited and she hoped his visit would raise awareness of the work the centre does, helping people countywide.
