We would like to say a huge thanks to Ian Twinley from John Grose Ford, Ipswich, for supporting the work we do here at Emmaus Suffolk. We have been leasing our van from John Grose since March 2018 and they have very generously contacted us to write off the final two instalments of our lease agreement and gift us the van. This means we now have £1000 to spend on essential services for our clients here in Suffolk.

Reacting to this amazing act of kindness, our CEO Claire Staddon said:

“Like all charities, we have just been through a really hard few months, and despite our shops now being open, we are still experiencing a reduction in income. We are so grateful to Ian and his team at John Grose for this act of kindness and supporting the work we do as a local charity. Cancelling our final two payments on our van means we can now put this money towards supporting the most vulnerable here in Suffolk during this incredibly difficult time.”
