A north London charity was joined by stars from the world of sport on Thursday (January 28), and by soup kitchen volunteers from around the world.
Every two weeks it also joins up soup kitchens around the world – including in New York, Los Angeles and Sydney – online on Zoom, sharing information and best practice.
This week, to mark Next Meal Day, special guests included Olympic gold medal-winning decathlete Daley Thompson, champion jockey Oisin Murphy, former West Ham and Everton star Tony Cottee, former Fulham star Les Strong, and pundit and former West Ham player Tony Gale.
The event featured a performance by international cellist Gabriella Swallow.
Martin said: "The sporting stars applauded those working with homeless people in difficult and trying times. The Zoom meeting proved to be highly inspirational and a great encouragement to those that took part."
