The Four Streets Project News
The 2017 Chichester Observer Community Awards took place at the beginning of December and The Shirley Henry Award was won by Donna Ockenden. Donna was unable to make the night so members of The Four Streets Project collected it on her behalf and spoke about the work they do feeding Chichester’s homeless every night. The initiative was founded by Donna in January 2017 and every night at least two volunteers have been out in the city centre supporting those in need.
