In our monthly Solidarity Committee Meeting, all members decide how to best support those in need through donations and solidarity activities.

Even this year, Emmaus SLC has managed to successfully deliver toiletries and food to a few charities, despite some minor setbacks due to Covid-19.

At the beginning of December, we contacted local organisations who work with the homeless and marginalised, to ask what help or support they needed, whether it was in terms of food or financial support.

As we did last year, we provided various items up to a value of £150 each for Living Well Bromley, Southside Rehabilitation Association, Purley Food Hub, Croydon Nightwatch, Croydon Refugee Day Centre and Lewisham Refugee and Migrant Network.

Each Christmas box was tailored to their needs. All orders were delivered by supermarkets’ contactless service, to make sure we kept everyone safe.

All donations were distributed to vulnerable people around South London, Croydon and the Surrey area.

Our financial donation went towards Street Storage.

All charities were really appreciative and grateful for what they received. In difficult times like this, it is important for us at Emmaus to continue with our strong solidarity ethos, a key feature of what our founder Abbe Pierre believed in.
