IT’S sale time at one of Sheffield’s best loved charity shops, Emmaus Sheffield.
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 – the Emmaus ‘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 organisation’s headquarters in the historic Sipelia Works, a former cutlery factory at Cadman Street, close to the city’s Canal Basin.
And one of its busiest times of year is its annual winter sale which is now up and running, with big discounts on many of its biggest and most popular furniture items.
“There really is no better time to come in and take a look around our Cadman Street store as we are offering savings of up to 50 per cent on many furniture items while stocks last,” said Emmaus Sheffield Shop Supervisor Kate Morgan.
“As ever, though, when there is a sales boom that is immediately followed by a need for fresh stock.
“As well as more items of furniture – which must have their fire safety labels still attached – we are also always in need of things like household items, bric-a-brac, books, CDs, DVDs and clothes because our regulars really do like to have a good browse and a hunt for a bargain!”
There’s a full collection service so there’s no need to worry about getting items for donation to Cadman Street.”
