Moat House Care Home Helps Hinckley Based Homeless Charity
Residents at Burbage-based Moat House Care Home proudly presented a cheque on behalf of the home for an astounding £25,000 to Emmaus, a Hinckley based homeless charity.
Dave Lock, Managing Director for Moat House said, “When I heard about the amazing work Emmaus do in our local community and how fundraising has been increasingly difficult with the closure of its charity shops during covid restrictions, we knew we had to help.”
Emmaus supports people to work their way out of homelessness, providing meaningful work, training, support and a stable home for as long as someone needs it in Leicestershire and Rutland.
“Emmaus is a great charity because they give people a second chance. Donating to them is keeping people off the streets and giving them a chance to get back on their feet” explained Arlene Fox (69), a former teacher and resident at Moat House Care Home.
“We are extremely grateful to Moat House. This sizeable donation has come at a much-needed time. Charities like ours rely on local support and this will go a long way to helping so many who need it,” added Emmaus CEO, Mir Juma who received the cheque at a special event held by the residents at Moat House.
“We can’t thank Moat House enough, I wouldn’t be here without the help I received from Emmaus, they saved my life, things are back on track for me, and I am learning new skills. This donation will change so many people’s lives for the better, I will always be grateful” said Shaun, an Emmaus Companion.
