City homeless charity Emmaus sheffield is spreading the word about its services to Sheffield’s shoppers.

Emmaus Sheffield is the drug and alcohol free project that provides a home, support and work for previously homeless people at its base close to the Canal Basin.

It is well known across the city for its charity shop that sells good quality furniture, bric-a-brac, clothing and electrical items, with the money raised going directly into providing the support needed by some of the most vulnerable members of society.

And now the Emmaus Sheffield team is taking is message to Crystal Peaks shopping centre with the launch of a series of information sessions.

On May 4, the Emmaus team will be in the Crystal Peaks Sainsbury’s car park with their distinctive multi coloured Tuk-Tuk, the three wheel mini vehicle most commonly associated with taxi services in Thailand, India and countries of the Far East.

“It’s been fully branded in our distinctive green and yellow colours so you’ll easily spot us at Crystal Peaks, where we be promoting our full range of services,” said Emmaus Community Manager Charley Fedorenko.

“And then we will be back in the Crystal Peaks Central Atrium on June 3, when there will be plenty of opportunities to chat and find out exactly how we work with and provide support for people who are trying to turn their lives around after being homeless.

“We would like to thank Crystal Peaks for this great opportunity to spread the word about Emmaus Sheffield and its services.”
