On November 22nd I will be sleeping under the stars to raise money for a local homeless charity, CHESS. Knowing that I have a safe place to return every night is often something I take for granted. But to rough sleepers ‘where will I sleep’ is a harsh reality that they have to face on a daily basis.
CHESS stands for "Churches Homeless Emergency Support Scheme". That is a significant statement of who they are and what they are about.
CHESS seeks to relieve homelessness and related hardship and distress amongst single adults in Chelmsford and Essex, through the provision of support services and temporary accommodation that helps them move on in their lives.
