Chelsea Stockton 
PROJECT VOLUNTEER 
Chelsea has grown up within the military community and fully understands the life of being the child of a serving member. She is the daughter of Gary & Sue Stockton and it is because of Chelsea that we first became involved in supporting the homeless people of ESSEX. Three years previous she got the family involved in collecting warm clothing to distribute to the homeless people of Colchester. The response that we had in the first year was amazing however during the second year we received clothing contributions from UK businesses, family and friends which took the level of support to a different scale.  
 
It was during those years that we got to meet and know many of the homeless by first name terms and it was clear that there was a number of veterans that had fallen on hard times. From this experience coupled with a few ideas and meeting other like minded people Phoenix Heroes was formed. Chelsea is a mother of two and has worked in retail for the past six years. She has a passion for helping others that are less fortunate and we are so proud to have her with us on this journey.
