Emmaus Merseyside to host Christmas Crafts Market – Saturday 8th December

Homelessness charity Emmaus Merseyside is inviting supporters to a Christmas Crafts Market on Saturday 8th December at the charity’s Seaforth superstore.

 The Emmaus Merseyside Christmas Crafts Market will take place on Saturday 8th December from 4pm. The event will include a range of festive stalls for all tastes and budgets with real and reusable trees, hand-made reindeers and wreaths, decorations and stocking fillers. All funds raised from this event will support people affected by homelessness.

Visitors to Emmaus’ Christmas Crafts Market will have the chance to meet Santa, hear choir singing, get involved in a DIY decoration workshop and enjoy tasty festive food and drinks as part of the Let’s Cook Project. There will also be a teddy bear tombola and a chance to donate food and household essentials to a local food bank to help fight holiday hunger this Christmas.

 Angela Quinn, Business Manager at Emmaus Merseyside, said: “We have some fantastic items crafted by our Emmaus Merseyside community members that will be available for sale. Purchasing products that have be handmade by our companions is not just investing your money in a worthy cause, it inspires new skills and confidence. All the proceeds from our Christmas Crafts Market event will assist in the housing and development of people who were previously affected by homelessness.”

 Emmaus Merseyside supports formerly homeless people by providing a stable home and meaningful work for as long as they need it. The charity runs three social enterprises in Merseyside, taking in and selling donated and refurbished furniture, household goods, bric-a-brac, clothes and vintage pieces.
