Join us for the Emmaus Family Fun Day
Emmaus Preston is hosting a Family Fun Day on Saturday 10 March in support of formerly homeless people.
The event will take place at the Emmaus Preston Megastore with activities for all ages including a bouncy castle, charity raffle, free cycle safety checks, sweet treats and lots of sale items up for grabs. The Emmaus Preston Megastore will also be stocked full of many great value furniture finds, vintage pieces, household items and electrical appliances.
Emmaus Preston supports formerly homeless people by providing a home and meaningful work in a community setting. The charity operates three large social enterprises in the city, providing valuable work opportunities whilst generating an income to help sustain the support offered by Emmaus Preston.
“The day promises to be great fun for all ages. For our charity raffle we have some amazing prizes such as tickets to a Preston North End game, a signed Leeds United shirt, family tickets to a Preston Grasshoppers and many more. The raffle will be drawn on Sunday 11 March at 4pm and tickets will be available on both Saturday and Sunday.”
Andy, companion at Emmaus Preston
All funds raised at the event will go towards the Emmaus Preston Bond Scheme which helps to pay the bond or deposit for when Emmaus companions (formerly homeless people supported at the charity) move on and get their own home.
“Our Family Fun Day fundraiser is a great way for all the family to have fun whilst helping towards a worthy cause. If you have never visited the biggest charity store in the country or want to truly make a difference to people affected by homelessness then make a trip to the Emmaus Preston Megastore on Saturday 10 or Sunday 11 March.”
Stephen Buchanan, Director of Emmaus Preston
