SALVATION Army volunteers who run a sanctuary for Sheffield’s homeless have been praised for their work by city politician Paul Blomfield.

The Labour MP for Sheffield Central visited The Salvation Army’s Lifehouse, on Charter Row.

Mr Blomfield spent an hour at the 56-bed facility to meet staff and residents.

Major David Chadwick, centre manager at Charter Row, said: “We are extremely grateful to Mr Blomfield for taking the time to come and visit us and giving us the chance to give him an insight into what it is like to be homeless in Sheffield.

“The Salvation Army has a long history of offering practical support to people who are vulnerable or are in need. Lifehouses are places where we can demonstrate real change and benefit to humanity.”
