Corby Business Academy has sent more than 100 lunches to the town's homeless project.

The school on the Priors Hall estate had to shut down for a deep clean last week after it was discovered that a pupil had sadly contracted coronavirus.

So surplus food that had been prepared for students and staff was delivered to the town's night shelter to distribute to rough sleepers.

The homeless shelter in Dorking Walk, which can house up to 16 people, is currently full. The project works with each individual and assists them with their individual needs before moving them into sustainable accommodation.

Lucy Brooks from East Northants Community Services, which runs the shelter, said: "Right now, we are doing everything we can to make this a happy home, the public have been so generous and we cannot thank you enough for your generosity."
