Deputy Leader for Birmingham City Council Cllr Ian Ward, stallholders from Birmingham's Christmas Frankfurt Market and the Salvation Army have marked the stallholders' annual donation to local charities for the homeless.

When the Frankfurt Market closes on Sunday 22 December, stallholders will donate money and produce, such as ham, doughnuts, waffles and sausages to local charities, including the Salvation Army William Booth Centre, Shadwell Street, Birmingham.

Deputy Leader of Birmingham City Council, Cllr Ian Ward, said: “On behalf of the city I would like to thank the Frankfurt stallholders for their annual act of generosity.”

Garry Murphy, William Booth Centre manager, added: “The donations of food from the Frankfurt Market stallholders will help us to give support for those sleeping rough on the streets of Birmingham as well as those accessing accommodation over this Christmas period.”
