Alex Mayer MEP visits Emmaus Cambridge

NewAM

On Friday 8 September, Emmaus Cambridge welcomed Alex Mayer, Member of European Parliament for the East of England to our community in Landbeach to celebrate International Day of Charity.

Community Director, Diane Docherty and Matthew, a trustee for Emmaus Cambridge were on-hand to show Alex around the grounds and explain why we're so proud of our companions and community alike.

Fortunately, the weather was kind allowing Alex to take a long stroll around the peaceful gardens, lovingly tended to by companion Stephen, before having a hot drink in Joan’s coffee shop. Ms Mayer also met the community’s chickens, and latest resident; Betty, our large black pig.
