Terry Waite opens a public shower and laundrette facility at the Dales
We were lucky enough to have Emmaus UK President Terry Waite come to visit us again recently to celebrate the launch of our refitted bathroom and laundry room. We are incredibly grateful for the support that Terry has shown us throughout our Emmaus Suffolk journey and our non-residential companions, volunteers, staff and supporters are always happy to see him.
Our bathroom project has been a long awaited goal for us allowing us to provide facilities for not only our non-residential companions, but also individuals signposted by our partner agencies who need welcoming peaceful facilities in which to maintain their personal hygiene within the Ipswich area.
Terry arrived early and had lunch with the non residential companions to catch up with them and find out how the bathroom and laundry were helping them. We were then joined for tea, cake and bathroom tours by funders, local businesses that had participated in the work and long term supporters as well as our great team and customers. It was an extremely positive event with everyone enthralled by a great speech from Terry and enthusiastic feedback for the new facilities.
