THE team at city homeless charity Emmaus Sheffield are dreaming of a Green Christmas as they bring an environmentally friendly approach to their seasons greeting.
On sale at the charity’s Cadman Street second hand superstore, close to Sheffield’s Canal Basin, are a selection of Christmas decorations all created from recycled wood.
Included in the range are miniature Christmas trees, Christmas card holders and even a range of peg boards that can be made to order.
“We feel there’s a distinctly festive Scandi-style flavour to our hand crafted decorations and they’ve generated a lot of interest,” said Emmaus Sheffield Deputy Community Manager Charley Fedorenko.
“Come in and take a look – and while you’re down here you’re almost certain to pick up a last minute gift or two from our extensive range of items.”
Emmaus Sheffield is a working community with quality, self-contained accommodation, training facilities and a workspace for previously homeless men and women aged 18 years and over.
It aims through its Social Enterprise programme to provide meaningful work and enable the people it supports – known as companions – to eventually become self-supporting once more.
One of the charity’s main fundraising schemes is its extremely popular second hand and vintage store at the organisations headquarters in the historic Sipelia Works, a former cutlery factory at Cadman Street.
