Corporate partner, Padiham based Gradient Consulting, have donated more than 170 hours of expert advice and support to Emmaus Burnley.

Gradient Consulting selected Emmaus Burnley as their charity of the year in 2020 and have continued their support as corporate partners for a second year.

Operations Manager, Dave Murray, at Gradient Consulting, said: “At Gradient we wanted to do our bit and give back to the local community near our head office in Lancashire and we sought a charity, which like us, worked across the UK and beyond. Emmaus Burnley do a wonderful job helping homeless people transforming their lives by providing them with a home and a job to get themselves back on track.

“It’s fantastic for a local Burnley lad like myself to be able to help others in my community and, having lived in the area for over 30 years, I know Emmaus’ support really does make a difference.”
