The Emma mattresses are available for sale at our Emmaus shops in Crosby Close, St Albans, and Boxmoor store in London Road, Hemel Hempstead.
Proceeds from the sale of the mattresses, which have already started to sell quickly, will go to the ongoing costs of providing support to up to 36 formerly homeless people at our community home in Crosby Close, St Albans.
Duncan Lewis, Chief Executive at Emmaus Hertfordshire said: “Huge thanks to Emma Sleep UK who have generously donated a number of reconditioned mattresses to us, to stock in our shops.
“They’re in brand new condition and on sale now in our Hill End and Boxmoor shops for a fraction of the retail price. Thank you, Emma. This donation will help us generate the income needed to provide a safe and stable home for those experiencing homelessness in Hertfordshire.”
Emmaus Hertfordshire is a charity that provides a home, training, work opportunities and individual support to people who have experienced homelessness. People supported by Emmaus Hertfordshire – known as companions – gain skills, confidence and experience by working alongside local volunteers in their social enterprise.
Dr Dennis Schmoltzi, CEO and co-founder at Emma – The Sleep Company, said: “At Emma, we strongly believe that everyone deserves a great nights’ sleep, no matter the circumstance. With this partnership and donation, we really wanted to use the power of sleep to raise vital funds for Emmaus Hertfordshire.”
The mattress donation to Emmaus Hertfordshire is part of a national charity partnership between Emma and Emmaus UK that will see the brand launch a range of fundraising activities throughout 2023. Through this first stage of support, £500,000 worth of mattresses have been donated to 30 Emmaus communities across the UK.
