The Salvation Army launches its annual Christmas appeal with the news that 15% of people feel less able to cope with problems over Christmas and a fifth of the population is dreading New Year this year because of fears about money, loneliness and concerns about the future in general.
The Salvation Army has responded to a call for help from Oxford Homeless Pathways (OxHoP) to help bring some warmth to people without their own home this Christmas.
Award-winning actor Michael Sheen has shared his favourite childhood Christmas present with The Salvation Army.
