Supporting Emmaus Surrey - Reed Business Information

RBI2

Here at Emmaus Surrey we have been fortunate enough to receive support from local businesses, including Reed Business Information in Sutton.

Since 2016 they have not only donated to us financially but also by providing staff members to give their time for volunteer days - including the Grand Opening day of our Stafford Road Wallington retail site back in May 2017 (pictured below)

Julie Lever, who is the charity consultant for Reed Business Information, had this to say about the work they have done with us:

“Reed Business Information began their relationship with Emmaus when they moved into their premises in Stafford Road in Wallington. 

We are always keen to work with local charities and were really impressed by how they support the homeless. 

We have supported them in several different ways. Financially In 2016 to help improve the facilities in Wallington and throughout 2017 we organised several fundraising events and were able to donate as well.

We also encourage our staff to donate furniture and other items to be sold in the shop and also all of our staff are entitled to 2 extra days leave a year to work with a charity of their choice and we were able to encourage them to consider opportunities with Emmaus.

We now have an established relationship with them and would hope to continue to support in the future.”

A very big thank you to everyone at Reed Business Information for supporting us and we hope that continues in 2018.
