One jauntily-decorated mini-Baron has resulted in Ricky Jordan - one of 64 residents living in Lincolnshire YMCA's Hostel in Lincoln - receiving an early Christmas present.
YMCA Housing Officer Neil Perkins said: "After receiving our Baron, we decided it would be fun to run a competition encouraging our residents, who are mainly homeless people, to come up with ideas of how it should be decorated.
"The Lincoln Charter Barons' Trail caused lots of interest over the Summer and several of our residents were eager to take part in the contest. A colleague handed out templates and they got to work.
"They did a great job. Staff judged the finished designs during one of our team meetings and Ricky's was the winner. We were delighted to present him with a prize of electricity vouchers," added Neil.
