Winter is an incredibly busy time for Emmanuel House, we generally see an increase in the number of people visiting the centre and we are also running the Nottingham Winter-Shelter.
In 2016 we served 66 Christmas day lunches and 62 Christmas eve meals to homeless & vulnerable adults in the city. All of these adults also received gifts, all of which were donated by local businesses. This year, our Gift Of Hope appeal aims to raise £50,000 for Emmanuel House to support the charity through 2018.
To help us achieve this, we are asking people to make a donation to our Gift of hope Campaign. This will help to pay for a meal for one of our service users, as well as providing support services and projects throughout 2017. In the past, people have fundraised by:
- Collecting £1 at parties
- Coffee mornings and bake sales!
- Winter fun runs or swims
- Hosting a music events
- Shopping through Easy Fundraising
