FORMER boxing champion and professional footballer Curtis Woodhouse has said a huge response to his offer to open his gym to homeless people at Christmas has “restored my faith in the human race”.

He said he has received more than 15,000 messages since he decided to open up his business in Driffield, East Yorkshire, after reading about the plight of the homeless over the festive period.

Mr Woodhouse said the messages have included inquires from people who needed accommodation but also scores of offers to help.
