Every year CHESS hosts its own Sleep Out in the grounds of Chelmsford Cathedral and last year’s participants raised over £20,000.
Sleeping out for the night might seem like fun, but for many people this is an every night reality! CHESS Homeless works to relieve homelessness and hardship amongst single adults in Chelmsford and Essex through the provision of support services and temporary accommodation.
By getting involved, you will help CHESS to support more people on a journey towards moving away from homelessness, from getting off the streets, to living in a new home, learning new skills and securing employment.
The money you donate will help vulnerable local people to live independently and also help CHESS reach their aims in continuing to change lives.
Tomorrow night, I will be giving up my bed and braving the elements to sleep out in the grounds of Chelmsford Cathedral.
I would appreciate any amount you can donate to help raise funds for this local charity.
Homelessness could happen to any of us, at any time.
We must all take the time to reflect and be grateful for what we have.
Thank you for reading this and for your support xx
