We shared the £1200 we raised at our annual brass band concert last year between three local charities and last month we visited Emmanuel House to hand over their cheque.
Emmanuel House is right on the front line supporting homeless, vulnerable or isolated adults in Nottingham without Government funding. At the moment of greatest need they provide a hot shower, fresh clothes, a hot meal and therapeutic activities to help turn people’s lives around.
On the 12th April charity workers Lauren Howatson and Gill Barker showed us around, In the pictures Gill (on the left) and Lauren showed the stores of donated food they collect to put on a hot meal every lunchtime. In the kitchen Chef was preparing chicken for the 70 odd people they serve each day. Also shown is the stores of fresh clothes.
This year’s concert will be on October 20th at Lutterell Hall, West Bridgford with the very popular Shirland Welfare Brass Band. So save the date.
Rotarians Tony Poulter and James Thornhill
