Shoebox Appeal Success!

Shoebox appeal boxes

We're so pleased to be able to share the news that our Shoebox Appeal was such a success.

Emmaus Village Carlton asked local people to kindly fill a shoebox with essential items that someone living on the streets might find useful. During November and December 2017, our companions and staff then distributed the shoe boxes to the street homeless at our fortnightly soup kitchen.

A massive thank you to everyone that supported our appeal! We distributed 350 shoe boxes to the homeless in Bedford and Northampton. This is just amazing; we really were touched that so many people took the time to help in this way.

Thank you!
