Midfielder Jim Stevenson, currently with Vanarama National League club Dover Athletic, wanted to do something to help those who may not be looking forward to Christmas quite as much as most.

So Stevenson, who is a personal trainer, decided to help the local homeless with a free Christmas dinner and a circuit training session in his local village of Over in Cambridgeshire.

The event took place at the local community centre on Wednesday where twenty homeless people from Cambridge and the surrounding area were treated to a turkey Christmas dinner and a little light exercise afterwards!

Stevenson, who moved from Histon in 2013 to Luton Town, where he made sixteen appearances as well as loan spells with Dartford and Aldershot Town, and then onto Aldershot on a permanent basis in the summer of 2015, signed for Dover in May, but still resides in Over where he set up his own circuit training business, `Over Power`, in September.

But he wanted to do his bit to help those less fortunate than him, along with the help of the local community centre, Willingham Butchers and Sun Fun Buses who all gave their help and support free of charge.
