The lovely ladies at the Queen Mother’s Clothing Guild have donated brand new sets of bedding and warm clothes to help our companions through the autumn and winter months. The donations include fleeces, jogging bottoms, socks, pillowcases, bed sheets, towels, face masks and more.
Linda Thompson, CEO of the Queen Mother’s Clothing Guild, said: “We are delighted that we can continue supporting Emmaus Greenwich this year. The work it does is extremely valuable, helping people who have experienced homelessness to find their feet, providing them with safe accommodation and the opportunity to learn new skills and get into employment.
The Guild was established in 1882 to donate brand new items of clothing (and later bedding) to those in need – not only to provide warmth and dignity to those who received them, but to also offer courage, comfort and hope for brighter days. Many of our wonderful Guild members spend all year knitting, stitching and crocheting beautiful hats, gloves, clothing and blankets, and these items can make a huge difference to people who have little, especially in these difficult times.”
Nicky Martin, Chief Executive of Emmaus Greenwich, added: “We are so grateful to the Guild for their ongoing generosity. Some of our companions arrive at the community with nothing but the clothes on their backs, so it’s amazing to be able to give them clean sets of clothes and comfy new bedding when they join us.”
