SOCKS AND CHOCS

We have gratefully received yet another parcel from Socks & Chocs.  This initiative was originally set up by a former soldier, PC Ian Northcott, known as the "busking bobby".

Following an incident involving a homeless man on the streets of Birmingham, Ian has been organising collections of socks, chocolates and sleeping bags, since 2010, which started in Birmingham but now collections take place all over the country, which are then donated to deserving charities, including Cyrenians. You can read more about this through the following websites :
