Reunited after 40 years!

Never give up on something!

One of Emmaus Cambridge's customers embroidered a fire screen some 40 years ago.  Having put hours of work into it she loaned it to a friend who was setting up an antiques shop and unfortunately it was sold by accident.

Imagine her son's surprise when he visited our Landbeach warehouse last week and found the self same fire screen sitting in our shop.  He wasted no time in acquiring it for her and reuniting her with it.  Everyone was pleased that she was so happy to see it again; whoever had it looked after it because it was still in beautiful condition.
