A Cardiff man who started a charity after a chance encounter with two homeless people has appealed for help to create a new community centre in Splott .
Paul Gwilym, from Tremorfa , started his charity Boomerang in 2012 after talking to two homeless people outside a shop in the city.
Since then Boomerang’s volunteers have fed the homeless in Cardiff between two and four nights a week. It has also provided other services including respite for young carers and providing shoes and clothes for disadvantaged families.
Now 37-year-old Paul has requested help from individuals and businesses, with the charity looking to go one step further by opening a community centre at Templar Parc on Eastmoors Road in Splott.
