To acknowledge the local support we receive, both from customers at our three charity shops and dedicated volunteers, we are holding a freezer giveaway with an Iceland voucher for a family in need before Christmas.

Emmaus Preston Director Stephen Buchanan said: “As a charity providing a home to people who have lost theirs, we’re sadly all too familiar with the results of the rising cost of living and pressures to pay the bills.

“To help one Preston family have a happier Christmas, charity beneficiaries have teamed up with the neighbours of our charity shop on Lowthian Street by Preston Markets – Iceland – to give away a 198-litre chest freezer and a £100 Iceland voucher for food.”

How to nominate
