Christmas has been canceled for 24 homeless Hulls

Hull's homeless people who had settled in hotel rooms at Christmas have canceled their reservation.

Carl Simpson, the founder of the Raise the Roof Homeless project, told the BBC that he paid £ 1,222 for 14 double rooms at the Royal Hotel in Hull, part of the Britannia Hotels group.

Hundreds of shared Facebook messages, Mr Simpson said he had been "removed".

A Royal Hotel employee told BBC on Sunday that no one was available to comment.

The handler's owner The Simpson message has split hundreds and most people are "horrified" and "disgusted" about the decision.

Employee MP Emma Hardy commented on the post: "I would love to contact the hotel here and ask them to reconsider."

After that, Mr. Simpson tells us that the hotel was told what rooms are being used before stealing them and sharing the hotel booking confirmation.

The cancellation is unclear.

Mr Simpson said he hoped to repeat "the last Christmas success" when he was able to reserve 28 people for the Ibis hotel for two nights.

"Afterwards they were so grateful, some left the staff gifts using very little money they had and one asked if the vacuum rooms could show his appreciation.

"This marks the world for homeless people. Last year we had tears of joy for someone who stood on the edge of the Humber bridge the previous night.

"We have to break the news to people that the hotel has been canceled."

Mr. Simpson said he did not yet receive a refund, so he could not sign in to another hotel, adding: "We need a miracle."

He said he would support donations to make the original reservation, and he was worried that the number of rooms needed could be found elsewhere at a reasonable price.

Mr Simpson said he had "tremendous follow-up" in his local community: "Three years ago, my wife had five days to live.

"We were given an emergency wedding at the hospital. I asked the audience for the wedding gown and the support was amazing."

He said he then took the hamburger in the city center to feed the homeless "to give back a little".

"My wife came home after eight months and is still with me, but she is very sick."
