Trust London to supply us with a dose of lovely, heartwarming stories during the colder months. People on Twitter have been utterly moved this week, as the Muslim-owned Shish Restaurant, which is located in the southeast London district of Sidcup, announced that they’ll be running a 3-course Christmas menu for the homeless, elderly and those who are lonely this year.

The simple hand-written poster, which lists an alternative menu of soup, casseroles, shish and rice pudding, makes the whole gesture even more heartfelt – removed of all accustomed frivolities and commercial motives. They want to make sure that ‘no one eats alone this Christmas’. Some Twitter users have admitted that this move has ‘restored their faith in humanity’ – and we can’t help but agree!
