Saddleworth art gallery, The Weavers Factory, has continued their support of Emmaus Mossley by donating items and proceeds from the sale of their gallery stock.

Since opening its gallery doors in 2019, The Weavers Factory has supported our charity in many ways, including a series of successful pop-up sale events. Following the decision to relocate The Weavers Factory to North Wales, owners Julian and Nigel wanted to continue their support of our charity.

The pair auctioned off items from the gallery and gift shop, donating 10% (£766.37) to Emmaus Mossley. A further 20 items remained unsold which have been donated to sell in our Secondhand Superstore.

Nigel Durkan, Manager at The Weavers Factory, said: “We’ve been working with Emmaus since we opened and we’re delighted to help out this Christmas. 2020 has been a really difficult year for everyone so every penny helps.”

Extremely grateful

The donations from the online auction, together with the value of items donated to Emmaus Mossley totalled £1,000. This financial boost is welcome news as we look to recover from the adverse effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and multiple store closures as a result of the nationwide lockdowns.

Hazel Hodkinson, Retail Manager at Emmaus Mossley, said: “I would like to give a big thank you to Nigel and Julian for their ongoing support, both prior to The Weavers Factory opening and throughout the gallery’s life in Saddleworth.

“The pair have wholeheartedly embraced our charity, taking the time to welcome and get to know our companions. We’re extremely grateful for this latest generous donation and wish them well with their relocation to North Wales.”
