ARGs Inaugural Charity Ball in October 2021 is raising money for 2 fantastic local charities.
The Chocolate Run:
is a charity dedicated to helping our homeless and vulnerably housed based in Harlow. The charity provide a weekly drop-in at GPCA Harlow and provide a 10 day Christmas Haven in December offering overnight accommodation to Harlow's Homeless.
The Chocolate Run started on Christmas Eve 1972 when Mic Eaton from Oakwood, Harlow had the idea to help the homeless over Christmas. He managed to borrow a mini bus from Oakwood Chapel, and gain the assistance of a few of the young locals. With his wife Madge making endless loaves of sandwiches, consisting of fish paste and margarine, he then spent Christmas Day borrowing flasks from other locals and running the sandwiches and packets of hot chocolate (hence the name The Chocolate Run) up to the homeless of Charing Cross Embankment. At the drop off there would be crowds of homeless gathered around to see what Mic had brought. The drop off was so successful that Mic decided to go the next week too, and the next and so on, for 20 years!
is a charity that provides an end to end service for those who are homeless or at imminent risk of becoming so from outreach on the streets to ongoing tenancy support in the private rented sector or offered a place within our supported accommodation project. The day centre provides shower facilities, clean clothes, meals and refreshments in addition to practical help and support to seek and secure accommodation, access health and well-being services and general assistance and support to overcome any barriers to securing housing and leading a healthy lifestyle.
