    Our Festival Charity

    Sanctus are the festival charity for the Chelmsford Winter Beer & Cider Festival 2019

    Sanctus Chelmsford

    Sanctus is a small but vital charity established in the bitter winter of 2011. Sanctus feeds the growing number of homeless, hungry and vulnerable individuals in our city. We run a free café offering breakfast, hot and cold drinks, snacks and a cooked homemade lunch. We are also able to help by offering accommodation to some of our service users, as well as 1:1 support/advice, and a range of enrichment activities including training, a Book Club, Music Club and Allotment Project.
