Companion's fundraising walk


On May 27th, our companion Steve took part in the London to Brighton Challenge, walking an exhausting 40km in 35 degree heat. His achievement is even more impressive because he did it to raise funds for Emmaus, the charity that saved him from homelessness.

Before I found Emmaus, I was homeless for 18 years, living from day to day and not knowing when or if it would ever end. It was a very scary experience. I slept wherever I could, in so many different places. I felt completely alone, with no-one to help me through any of it; I got no support. That’s all changed now I’ve found Emmaus. There’s no two ways about it – Emmaus saved my life."

Steve would like to thank everyone who has supported him. His efforts have raised over £400.
