A GROUP of teenagers are seeking young volunteers to help out with a youth-led soup kitchen for the homeless.

The team are hoping the kitchen, which will give out free sandwiches and soup, will be ready to start serving at the beginning of November but they need more helpers urgently.

Based at the United Reform Church in Bromley High Street, it is expected to open over the Christmas period.

The group meet on Mondays and Wednesdays from 5.30pm to 7pm, but volunteers, who should be aged 16 to 25, need only attend on one of the days.

Hayes School pupil, David Sterling, 17, said: "There is no service like this in Bromley for homeless people. Volunteering is fun, we have a laugh and we are all friendly. Mr Sterling, who also volunteers at Queen Mary's Hospital, Sidcup, added: "I want to study medicine so this will be really good experience.
