The focus was Brighton charity Off the Fence, which offers practical support to hundreds of individuals in the city.

Everyone took in donations for the charity, which has a day centre for homeless people. Last year, this housed 61 rough sleepers and made 1,054 street visits.

The charity also helps women in times of crisis, abuse, isolation and loneliness, with 1,297 visits to drop-in sessions last year.

For children and youths, the charity aims to equip young people for dealing with difficulties in life, build healthy relationships and reach their potential.
