There are still so many young children without a proper bed of their own.
Each time we raise £165, we will give a new Bed Pack (with bed, mattress & bedding) to a local child in Stoke-on-Trent and surrounding areas.
Many people living in poverty simply cannot afford basic furniture. Our charity Emmaus North Staffs works to tackle furniture poverty by helping to change that. In recent times, we’ve sadly seen a big increase in the number of families asking for beds for their children.
It’s heart-breaking and we want to change this – which is why we’ve launched ‘Beds for Kids.’
Having very little sleep, or no sleep, can have a serious affect on all of us, and even more so the physical and mental development of a young child in their formative years.
“We speak to hundreds of families each month, and for a child to be able to have their own comforts has such a positive impact in so many ways and transforms their lives for good.” – John Webbe, our charity’s Executive Lead.
Each £165 raised will enable us to provide a complete brand new Bed Pack (with bed, mattress & bedding) for a local child in Stoke-on-Trent and surrounding areas.
Thanks so much for your support.
Thanks to the support of a group of local businesses, we’ve already given away eight children’s ‘Bed Packs’ to families in need. Each Bed Pack includes a brand new child’s bed, mattress and all bedding.
We’d like to say a huge thank you to the following Stoke-on-Trent companies that have donated to the campaign so far: My Mortgage Wizards, Do BookKeeping, ChattyDuck Media, Lyon Power Electrical Services, Eaglet Business Services and Adrian Hide Consulting. We’d like to thank the local Business Network BNI@10 for their ongoing support.

“The idea of children not having a safe, warm and comfortable place to sleep is just unacceptable. I know I cannot help every child, but if everyone did their bit then it would make a huge difference to lives in the local area.”
