Emmanuel House eBay

We also sell high quality stock on our eBay page, which is managed and organised by our wonderful charity shop volunteers.

Charity shop volunteers

Our Nottingham charity shop is staffed entirely by volunteers so all money made from the sale of stock goes directly to supporting homeless, vulnerable and isolated adults in Nottingham.

The shop is a vibrant and engaging project that helped us to raise money for homeless, vulnerable and isolated adults in Nottingham.

If you are interested in volunteering in any part of the day and you would like to make a real difference to our work with homeless and vulnerable people, we would love to hear from you. Please visit our volunteering page for our current vacancies.
