Cambridge goes to Reims!

Reims 4

A team of staff and companions has just returned from the 10th anniversary Emmaus Regional Sale in Rheims.  The sale brought together communities from France, the Netherlands, Romania and Germany in addition to Emmaus Cambridge to raise funds for Emmaus International.

Deputy Community Manager Mark said “These are always good opportunities for us to get together and meet people from other communities, while making money for those most in need.  This time we took lots of hats with us and they were really popular!”

The sale attracted about 3,500 people and raised over €37,000 for Emmaus International’s work in the fields of education and healthcare in addition to support for the affiliated organisation SOS Familles.

French TV reported on the story.
