Caroline St shop celebrates its 3rd birthday!

Our shop located on Caroline Street in Bridgend, celebrated its 3rd birthday on Halloween. To mark the occasion, the shop had 10% off all items and also ran a ‘Guess how many marbles’ competition, with a £25 Emmaus shop voucher up for grabs. The shop was decorated in a Halloween theme, with sweets on offer for customers which were kindly donated by ASDA Bridgend.

 Shop Manager Chris said “We wanted to celebrate and thank our customers for supporting us over the past three years. Without people buying and donating items, we wouldn’t be able to help the formerly homeless people living at our Community home in Bridgend. So it’s a really good cause.”

On the day, the winner of the ‘How many marbles in the jar’ competition was announced. There were 750 marbles in the jar, and the winning guess was from Thelma Jones, who guessed 728. Well done!

Emmaus South Wales would like to thank the people of Bridgend for their continued support. Without our customers and supporters we wouldn't be able to support the formerly homeless individuals living in our Community home in Bridgend.
