Two brothers from Birmingham will open their chip shop on Christmas Day to feed the homeless and elderly.

The “Classic Fish Bar” in Erdington laid on turkey dinners for rough sleepers and the elderly last Christmas and due to its success they are doing it again.

Fast food classics like chicken dinner and fish and chips will be given away in boxes to anyone who turns up between 12.30pm and 3pm on Christmas Day.

Brothers Asef and Hamid Faqiri want to do their bit for charity after seeing the homeless population rocket in recent years.

Hamid told Birmingham Mail: “It was a huge success and we had between 30 to 40 people come in and have some food.

“So we thought we’d do it again, and hopefully it will be just as popular.”
