We’re calling on local people to donate any unwanted items of quality furniture to help our homelessness charity Emmaus Leicestershire & Rutland.

Each year, our charity ensures that more than 6,000 pieces of unwanted furniture are saved from the rubbish tip, offering a free collection service for items in good condition. The collected goods are sold in our two Hinckley shops: the Emmaus Emporium on Stockwell Head and La Boutique on Castle Street.

Emmaus Leicestershire & Rutland provides a home, support and meaningful work to 16 formerly homeless individuals. Some stay for a while as they gain confidence and skills before they feel ready to move on to independent living; others are in need of longer-term support and are able to stay for as long as they need to.

Furniture items often help to raise the most money for the charity. We’re asking people to take a look around their house, sheds, lofts and garages – if they have any quality furniture they don’t need, they can call us to book a free collection from their home.

We hope that our local community will pull together to help Emmaus make a difference – everything sold in our shops will raise money to help us change the lives of formerly homeless people. Find out how we help.
