Model and actress Jerry Hall was in West Norwood, England, on Tuesday to support homeless charity Emmaus by decorating a special Christmas tree.

The 56-year-old hung mini policeman, nurses and teachers on a tree to show how the yearly savings to the taxpayer made by the charity could be spent.

“The charity believes, and I do too, that broken lives can be fixed by restoring in people the sense of their potential,” said Hall, who earlier this year raised $54,600 when she auctioned off some of her most valuable dresses.

Emmaus Communities offer homeless people a home, work and the chance to rebuild their lives in a supportive environment by restoring and selling second hand furniture – in turn taking them off benefits and Government support. There are currently 14 Communities open around the UK and several more in development.

More information about the charity can be found at their website.
