We have two exciting new job vacancies advertised at present, so for those looking for a New opportunity this year check out our website for more details”.

[quote]It’s great to have an Emmaus retail store coming here to Preston Road Village Centre. Selling a wide range of goods that is both affordable and really needed by our communities means that it is a huge boost for the area. Local residents, Emmaus and those they support will share in the benefits that this new venture brings.”[/quote]
