Helping rough sleepers in Leicester

Handout Leicester

Emmaus Leicestershire & Rutland is calling on people living in our local area to donate any warm clothes, coats, sleeping bags etc at our Emporium shop in Hinckley, Leicestershire.

We’re collecting these to hand out to those living on the streets of Leicester, to help make their lives a little less cold during the winter months.

We really appreciate all the help everyone has given so far for this. Thanks to everyone’s generosity, our staff and companions have been able to take a van full of clothing and essential supplies out on several occasions during November, December and January. We hope to continue these regular evening visits as the cold weather continues.
