Cathy Socks Chocs 2017We would like to thank Cathy Foreman who collects on behalf of 'Socks 'n' 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, for which we are very grateful. Their donation of socks & chocolate was very much appreciated again this year.
