This month, we will be supporting Oxfam’s Secondhand September campaign. An initiative which encourages shoppers to buy secondhand items only for 30 days throughout September.
Shopping secondhand at Emmaus Greenwich means you’ll not only be helping people overcome homelessness, but you’ll also be helping to protect the planet by rebelling against fast fashion and reducing waste.
Every penny you spend at our secondhand shops goes back into our community, funding a home, meaningful work, training, food and living expenses for people who have experienced homelessness, like Malcolm.
Malcolm found a home at Emmaus Greenwich almost eight years ago, after spending five years of his life living in a tent near Kingston. He says: “I am grateful to have been given a second chance at life. I have a lovely room, I am able to work and I can still lead an active social life. I love it here. My life is officially back on track.”
