Giggs, Neville allow homeless to stay winter in hotel
Manchester United legends Ryan Giggs and Phil Neville are earning that title off the field for a fairly legendary act of generosity.
Upon learning that a group homeless activists were occupying the building they are renovating into a boutique hotel, Giggs and Neville had a pretty unique response.
Stay the winter.
The group, called the Manchester Angels, routinely occupy out-of-use buildings in an attempt to help homeless folks find their footing.
It’s a move that left the residents quite emotional. From The Guardian:
The old building was called the Manchester Stock Exchange. In a classic bit of wit, the Angels are calling it “The Sock Exchange”.
Good on you, Giggs and Neville. Now see if any of the residents are potential candidates for the Homeless World Cup, and we’ll have a movie on our hands!
