Following Boris Johnson’s pledge that 20,000 citizens will be accepted into the UK, people are taking to social media and making it clear they’re happy to help out.

On Twitter, one person wrote: “I am a 76-year-old pensioner, I live on my own in a two-bedroom bungalow.

“I have today informed Wakefield Council I am willing and able to give two refugees accommodation in my spare room.”

Another said: “We’ve likewise offered a room – to a young person seeking asylum – and will be matched with someone by the local authority. Good luck and well done.”

Their posts have been praised by thousands, as they’ve been dubbed ‘inspiring’ people.

Hearing of their generosity, one woman penned: “That’s fantastic and inspiring, I’m off to do the same! I have followed you for a while now because I liked what you wrote, now I think you’re amazing and wish you lived close so I could drop in for a cuppa and chat!”
