Local developers team up with Emmanuel House to support the homeless this Christmas

This Christmas, the developers behind a number of Nottingham schemes such as The Grove Pub in Lenton and Grains Building in Hockley have teamed up with local charity Emmanuel House to donate special gifts to those that need it most.

Emmanuel House, a charity that supports the most vulnerable citizens in Nottingham, has been providing much-needed support during the coronavirus pandemic. On 27 March, under the Government’s ‘Everybody In’ scheme, its Nottingham Night Shelter moved into a hotel and has enabled rough sleepers to self-isolate in individual rooms throughout the pandemic.

This Christmas, and for the rest of the winter period, the charity is supporting up to 45 guests in the hotel, who would otherwise be rough sleeping. To help make the holiday period a little brighter, Bmor has supplied a giftbag for every guest, each filled with essential items and festive treats, and Carlton Street Trading has donated a selection of hats, gloves, scarves, and more.

Paul Irwin, director at Bmor, said:

“We’re delighted to be able to support Emmanuel House and the great work they are doing across the city. Everyone should have a safe, warm roof over their head this Christmas so we’re really happy to be able to support this aim as well as spread some festive cheer this Christmas.”

Denis Tully, CEO at Emmanuel House, said:

“We’re incredibly grateful to Bmor for the kind donation of the gift bags and Carlton Street Trading for the warm clothing. In the hotel, we are currently supporting 45 people who otherwise would be rough sleeping, providing them with shelter, food, support, and en-suite facilities.

“Providing our shelter guests with food and a hot drink when they arrive at the hotel is an incredibly important step in the journey to getting the support they need.”

Emmanuel House is an independent charity that supports homeless, vulnerable and isolated adults in Nottingham. It provides diverse and accessible services that meet people’s basic needs including showers, laundry and a change of clothing. It works to empower individuals through support services, trained professionals and social activities. With limited statutory funding, it relies on donations.
