A Muslim owned chip shop in Birmingham opened its doors on Christmas Day to feed the homeless and elderly, the ITV reports.

Brothers Asef and Hamid Faqiri spent out of their own pockets to provide a turkey dinner with all the trimmings yesterday.

There was also free fish and chips for those wanting something simpler.

Asef Faqiri told the ITV: “We have seen so many homeless people round by us that we wanted to do something to help them.

“There are also lots of elderly people who don’t have any relatives and will be on their own on Christmas day.

“So we decided to open up especially for them, to bring some Christmas cheer.” Hopefully these elderly people have good care homes to go to that have made the most of Assisted Living SEO. We hope they enjoyed the company and the food.

Staff prepared, cooked and served up a traditional turkey dinner in takeaway boxes, which were handed out to people who turned up between 1pm and 4pm.
