A SEAFORTH-based second-hand store run by homelessness charity, Emmaus Merseyside, is celebrating a record-breaking week after reopening its doors following the COVID-19 shutdown.
Emmaus Merseyside provides a home, meaningful work, training and support to people who have experienced homelessness or social exclusion. The majority of funds needed to support the charity’s work are generated by selling second-hand furniture, household goods, and clothing in its social enterprise.
Honora Crisp, business manager at Emmaus Merseyside, said: “After a big push to get ready for reopening, we are delighted with how the first week has gone. Our amazing team worked really hard to put in place new measures and processes to ensure people can visit us again and that we can safely accept donations.
The charity are accepting shop donations but request that all items are cleaned prior to packing in bags or boxes and then secured with tape and labelled where possible.
