Whilst the children return to school for a new term, Emmeline’s stepped up its preparations for Christmas. It takes months of planning and hard work from the volunteers to ensure we are prepared for all our upcoming events. Each month we will be appealing for something different, this month we have asked our supporters for new pyjamas for women and children. We all love that feeling of a cosy new pair of pyjamas at Christmas time, and we aim to give that to each and every woman and child who visits us.
In line with this, we have updated our Amazon Wishlist, which lists all the items we specifically need at the moment. It’s a really convenient way for supporters, both locally and further afield to donate to us. We appreciate every parcel that arrives here, and every item will go towards making Christmas extra special for a family.
September also saw a wonderful event, Mic Up Manchester, a live music event in Chorlton which raising money for Emmeline’s.
Our new addition arrived at Emmeline’s, a bench, kindly donated by Haslingden High School. We hope that it will encourage more people to sit and chat, although we may have to wait until the warmer weather arrives!
We expect this Autumn to be our busiest yet, as more local clients hear about us, we expand our service and we prepare for Christmas. Please look out on our Facebook page for our monthly appeals, every donation matters to us.
