Get involved

Emmaus Mossley are a big part of the wider community and we value everyone who comes through our doors.  Just by donating and buying from us you are involved in the support of the community and we thank you for your support.  If you should wish to become more involved in what we do here or in what we have to offer then there are plenty of opportunities to join us.

  • Volunteering - we have a wonderful team of volunteers at Mossley, who we would not be without.  They offer their time on a regular, weekly (often more) basis.  Working on the shop floor and behind the scenes in the sorting areas and in our workshops.  We are flexible but would ask that volunteers try to keep to a regular time and day to enable the structure and working relationship with the team to run as smoothly as possible.
  • Friends of Emmaus - we understand that not everyone can give their time on a regular, weekly basis.  By becoming a 'friend' of Emmaus Mossley, we can perhaps call upon your help when we have something 'big' coming up i.e. Open day or Christmas Fair.  Or possibly to leaflet for us or just to promote an event.
  • Workshops - Our resident artist Tonie Rigby facilitates an upcycling group every Friday morning.  The group consists of some wonderful, creative and very talented volunteers who meet every week and create fabulous gifts out of items they find in our donations.  These are then sold through our shop.  By donating their valuable time and effort they help us to recycle and re-use fabrics, furniture and bric a brac.  Anybody is most welcome to come and join in.  It is a lovely way to spend a morning without spending a penny.
