Give as you Live in support of City of Chelmsford MENCAP

There’s plenty we can do to support those in need at Christmas, and that kindness will be even more important this year. Whether it’s donating to a food bank, volunteering at a soup kitchen, or lending your terrible dance moves to the latest Instagram charity challenge, all the little things add up and truly make a difference.

While our usual fundraising activities have been restricted this year, including hosting the City of Chelmsford Mencap Christmas Market, there are plenty of ways you can still help this Christmas.
