Young performers swapped plays for presents earlier this month as they collected donations for homeless people in Sussex.

Members of the Perrymount Players Youth Theatre Group have been filling socks with gloves, hats, shower gel, soap, cereal bars, and deodorant in support of the Happy Socks initiative.

Community group Knight Support has been collecting the donations to help homeless people across the county.

Lynne Knight and Paula Pattenden from Knight Support visited the youth group at Haywards Heath Methodist Church on December 7 to receive the donations, which will now go to help local people who are living rough.

Volunteers from Knight Support have been giving out Happy Socks over the Christmas period and hope to carry this on throughout the year.

Up-to-date information about the group’s work, together with a list of donation sites, can be seen on Knight Support Facebook page.
