We are grateful for the dedication and support of our volunteers who help in our shop, workshops and driving our vans.

Richard, who volunteers in our workshop, had this to say about working with Emmaus Hastings & Rother:

In these straitened times there’s not so much work about and I’d rather be here than sitting at home twiddling my thumbs. It can be very frustrating; some bits of furniture can be very annoying, but when you see it finished it’s worth it.  If someone’s going to have a wardrobe, even if it’s second hand, they might as well have something decent.  A lot of things just need a good clean.”
