HOMELESSNESS charity Shiloh is throwing open the doors of its new home to the public.

The new centre on Station Road in Masbrough is now open for business and a public open day is taking place from 11am to 3pm on Saturday, July 22. 

As well as providing meals and shelter for the homeless, the new centre will also offer health and employment support services.

Refreshments will be available.

John Donnell, General Manager for Shiloh said: “With the tremendous support of the Council, and its two main housing contractors; Fortem and Mears, together with support from a host of other businesses, churches, charities, and the general public, the old Weighbridge has been converted and renovated to become perfectly suited for Shiloh’s work with our homeless and vulnerable guests.

“This year, Shiloh is celebrating its 25th year of supporting people in Rotherham who are going through a difficult period in their lives, so what better way to celebrate than moving into this superb new facility with potential for even further expansion over the years.
