Room at the Inn: Festive season at The Chocolate Run

IT IS HARD to avoid any religious references on December 24th but it was heartening to see that there was “room at the inn” at The Chocolate Run on Christmas Eve.
As the sun was setting at the base next to the Great Parndon Community Association, YH went along to the centre to speak to trustee Neil Hopkins about how things were going at the Christmas haven.
A number of organisations such as The Chocolate Run and Street2Homes have come together to make sure people who want it, have a place to call home over Christmas.
They often say that you are only two wage slips or a personal misfortune away from the street. It is as true today as it was 2000 years ago.
Much respect and a happy Christmas to all those who have given up their time to volunteer.
