Banbury Young Homelessness Project (BYHP) appealed to the kind Banbury community after its cooker broke and within a week a new one was installed.

The charity took to Twitter and its pleas were soon answered by Buywise in Parsons Street.

Buywise’s director Jolyon New said: “People are always supporting local businesses so we wanted to give something back to the community.” BYHP’s acting chief executive, Deb Parker, said: “It’s made a huge difference - we absolutely depend on in and now we can cook a nice homemade meal for the young people again.”

She added the charity was also really grateful to everyone supporting their appeal. Pictured are Deb Parker and Aida Walsh with Jolyon New.
