Vulnerable adults benefit from Christmas donation

TWEM - Emmanuel House Donation - WEB

We donated £500 to help a charitable organisation spread some festive cheer to homeless and vulnerable adults in and around Nottingham.

Funded entirely by donations, Emmanuel House offers diverse and accessible services to approximately 2,000 adults each month with the aim to empower them to make positive changes in their lives.

This includes providing around 80 hot meals a day, offering shower facilities to the homeless and giving advice about issues such as benefits, tenancy, alcohol and drugs.

Our donation will be used to pay for the centre to be open on Christmas day, and also to pay for every visitor to have a Christmas dinner plus a small gift.

Kim Winter, marketing and communication director at Emmanuel House, says: “We are the only functioning day centre for homeless and vulnerable adults in Nottingham and we receive no state funding whatsoever – so the £500 donation from Taylor Wimpey will make a huge difference.

“We want to say a massive thank you to Taylor Wimpey on behalf of all of the service users as well as the staff.”

Mariana Knight, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey East Midlands, says: “We are thrilled to be able to support Emmanuel House – it is such a worthy cause and the work they do is fantastic.

“For homeless and vulnerable people, Christmas can be a very difficult time but hopefully we can help to brighten people’s day by enabling this wonderful facility to continue its important work on December 25th.”

We are currently building high-quality homes at developments across the East Midlands in Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Derbyshire, Northamptonshire, Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire.
