IT’S beginning to look a lot like Christmas at homeless charity Emmaus Sheffield as its popular second hand superstore launches a range of festive items for the home.
On sale at the charity’s Cadman Street store, close to Sheffield’s Canal Basin, is a full range of decorations, including some items hand crafted by the Emmaus companions and volunteers.
“You can go to the high street but if you’re looking for something a little more quirky and unusual I would say you should definitely call in and see what we have for sale,” said Emmaus shop supervisor Kate Morgan.
“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, including everything from clothing to books, CDs and DVDs as well as household goods and bric-a-brac.”
Emmaus Sheffield is a drug and alcohol free project that provides a home, support and work for formerly homeless people in the city.
Through its Social Enterprise programme it aims to provide meaningful work for the people it supports – companions – to eventually become self-supporting once more.
The shop is open 9am to 4.30 Monday to Friday, 9am to 4pm Saturdays and 11am to 4pm Sundays.
