Local Homeless Group, Emmaus has received a £250 boost to its funds from Dukinfield and Stalybridge Rotary Club to help them to continue with their work in supporting local homeless people.
After presenting the cheque, members of the Rotary Club were given a guided tour of the facilities within Longlands Mill, Mossley which has the capacity to support 26 companions at any one time
Adrian France, Senior Finance Officer from Emmaus commented that the donation from Dukinfield and Stalybridge Rotary Club is much appreciated. At the heart of Emmaus Mossley are our companions – the residents we support. Our charity’s main focus is on supporting people, providing a home for as long as someone needs it and meaningful work in our social enterprise.
The donation will assist Emmaus to continue to help our companions to live in a stable environment with the opportunity to regain lost self-esteem and the confidence to get back on their feet.
Ian Cochrane, (Vice President – Dukinfield and Stalybridge Rotary) says that Dukinfield and Stalybridge Rotary Club has pledged that its main priority action for 2020-21 is to provide practical support and assistance to local Homeless Groups and Organisations in Dukinfield, Mossley and Stalybridge.
“We have already made donations to local foodbanks in the area during the Covid 19 pandemic and want to strengthen our links with Emmaus. It does such a fantastic job in supporting previously homeless people and raises valuable funds from the sale of furniture, clothing and bric a brac donated by local residents as well as running a popular local café from Longlands Mill.”
