A Chelmsford charity is celebrating after being awarded £200 from DFS.

Chess Homeless has received a donation of £200 from DFS Chelmsford in recognition of the amazing work that the charity does in the area.

The charity runs several services to help those affected, including a night shelter and counselling services.

DFS Chelmsford store manager, Steve Jarrett, who presented Chess Homeless with the cheque, said: “We are always on the lookout for local causes who could benefit from a donation. When we saw the great work that Chess Homeless is doing to help those facing homelessness in the area, we knew we wanted to help.”
