Rob talked about the work of CHESS supporting people in Chelmsford, Maldon and Epping Forest. There appears to be an ever increasing need. He talked recently about people the origination has helped in their 60s and one person aged 83 years. Their new main building in London Road Chelmsford now has a facility for someone who is disabled in a wheelchair. He also talked about increasing issues with drug gangs coming from London. CHESS are always seeking volunteers to add to their existing number of over eighty. An important role is fundraising and organising events. Their annual sleepout in the grounds of Chelmsford Cathedral is on 30th of November. More information about the organisation, how you can support, and events is on www.chesshomeless.org and on Facebook and 01245 281104.
