Before I began volunteering at Emmaus, I spent many years working in retail, both in England and South Africa. Since I arrived at Emmaus Leeds four years ago, I have worked in the bric-a-brac department where I am responsible for pricing up and sorting out clothes, shoes and various other bits and bats.

My time at Emmaus has enabled me to gain an insight into other people’s way of life and given me a sense of purpose in the work I do. I thoroughly enjoy working with the companions as they all come from different backgrounds which means they are a great source of interesting anecdotes!

Emmaus is a fantastic organisation to be a part of so please continue to give your much appreciated support. It all goes towards pushing the organisation forward and bettering the lives of everyone within the community.
