A Tameside charity which provides accommodation and work for previously homeless and unemployed people is set for a boost from Bromleys Solicitors.
Staff at the Tameside law firm have chosen Emmaus Mossley as their charity of the year for 2019.
Emmaus Mossley supports formerly homeless people by providing them with a home and work in a community setting. The charity runs a social enterprise from its base in Longlands Mill selling furniture, household goods, clothes, bric-a-brac and vintage items, including vinyl records and collectables.
Bromleys’ staff will hold a variety of fundraising activities during 2019 as well as supporting the organisation’s events and volunteering at its premises.
Gillian Nettleton, support worker at Emmaus Mossley, said: “It is a huge honour to be selected by Bromleys Solicitors as the firm’s charity of the year for 2019.
“The Emmaus Mossley community is looking forward to getting involved with staff from Bromleys and we are excited by what the partnership will achieve over the coming months.”
Jill Lomas, a receptionist at Bromleys and member of the firm’s charity committee, said: “We are committed to giving back to the community, and are delighted to be involved with Emmaus Mossley.
“We look forward to working with Gillian and her team in a variety of ways to raise funds, take part in events, help out at the centre and raise awareness about the wonderful work they do.”
Meanwhile Bromleys has handed over a cheque for £1010.47 to Francis House Children’s Hospice in Manchester, which was the firm’s charity of the year for 2018.
Francis House supports more than 460 children and young adults with life-limiting conditions and their families from across Greater Manchester.
