The Muslim selling German sausages who will be giving away meals to the homeless on Christmas Day

The German Sausage Man has been a fixture near Lewisham Clock Tower for years – and now he will be a magnet for the homeless on Christmas Day.
Stall holder Mustafa Omer has been selling hot dogs and other sausages in the area for more than seven years – and took over the franchise outlet himself this year.
And this Yuletide he has decided to blow a huge portion of his takings on handing out meals to people less fortunate than himself – the borough’s street sleepers.
They will be able to get a free hot dog there from 10am-2pm on Christmas Day – while stocks last.
The 35-year-old, born and raised in Peckham, said: “I am a Turkish Muslim but my family celebrate Christmas. This is a time to give back to people less fortunate.
“Most people will have friends and family to be with on Christmas Day but if you don’t I would like to help.”
The former pupil of Walworth School and Peckham Park Primary, whose outlet was local business of the year in 2009, said: “When people come here, they see the German flag. Then they hear the reggae I play all the time – my favourite is Dennis Brown. Then they hear me speak – common as anything. Then I tell them I am Turkish.
“But that’s what it was like when I grew up in Peckham. We are all different. This is the first year I have been in charge and I wanted it to be a loving and giving Christmas for everyone.”
