Santa on the street

A formerly homeless Croydon man shares some festive cheer

A former rough sleeper is spreading seasonal cheer to homeless people in Croydon.

Chris Collins is collecting toiletries, radios, old phones and warm clothes from residents of the South London borough, which he'll then hand out to those on the street every Thursday up until 25 December. Thirty-nine-year-old Mr Collins, who is looking for volunteers to help him in the evenings, decided to do this having been homeless himself in 2007.
