Euston Station Will Become A Huge Homeless Shelter On Christmas Day

share on:

Good deeds don’t come much bigger than this.

How’s this for spreading Christmas cheer? On December 25th, Euston station will be transformed into a massive homeless shelter. Two hundred of London’s homeless population will receive food and shelter in the otherwise deserted station. Volunteers are donating everything from food to their time in order to spread some Christmas joy.

We love this idea, given that Euston would be closed for Christmas Day in any event. What’s more, thirty volunteers from Network Rail are giving up their time to help serve a huge Christmas dinner, and provide Christmas cheer.
They’ll be working alongside charities St Mungo’s and Streets Kitchen to help those in need.

Steve Naybour from Network Rail said “we’ve had lots of interest from Network Rail colleagues to volunteer to come along on the day to help out”. It’s rare we get to say this, but excellent job Network Rail! They’re definitely a leading contender for the most charitable act this Christmas, and we salute them for it.
