Did you help raise funds to kick start Emmaus Mossley? Were you a customer in their first shop on Manchester Road? Did you help out in the refurbishment and transformation of their Longlands Mill base? Have you volunteered at Emmaus?

If so, Emmaus Mossley wants stories from friends, supporters, customers, past companions and volunteers who have helped to make the charity what it is today.

2017 marks the 20th anniversary of Emmaus Mossley and one of the projects they are working on is an in-depth history which will be compiled and published in a book which will be available later in the year.

Frances Hirst, Chair of Emmaus Mossley, said: “If you have a recollection you would like to share then we would love to hear from you.

“This could be a fond memory you have, a piece about your involvement in the charity or a funny event that happened at Emmaus Mossley.”

Emmaus Mossley supports 26 formerly homeless people by providing them with a home and work in a community setting.

The charity runs a social enterprise in Mossley, selling donated and upcycled furniture, household goods and vintage wares.
