200 homeless people enjoyed a three-course Christmas Day meal at London Euston Station thanks to a partnership between Streets Kitchen, St Mungo’s and Network Rail.

The station concourse was filled with decorations, and tables laid so that the guests could enjoy a full Christmas dinner and some company.

200 homeless people enjoy Christmas Dinner at London Euston Station

Seven vets attended the meal and heated dog kennels were set up for guests bringing dogs.

Beth Norden, Community and Events Manager for St Mungo’s, said, “Many people become homeless because of relationship breakdowns, so Christmas can be a particularly lonely time for some of our residents.

“Our thanks to Network Rail, their staff and volunteers, for helping some of our residents in Camden and neighbouring boroughs feel included in the community this Christmas Day.”

St Mungo’s worked with Network Rail to make this event available to their clients who are in their supported housing and hostels. With a capacity of 200 guests, anyone who came without an invitation were directed to a nearby centre where Crisis were providing support over the Christmas period to people who are homeless.

This event was a one-off, but hopefully it will be rolled out across the country in time.
