Published by: Marketing on December 12, 2016 at 10:28 AM


On the 3rd of December, Avonside Group came together to celebrate Christmas and whilst doing so raised a whopping £1668.75 for our partner charity Emmaus through a Christmas raffle. We would like to say a special thank you to all of our suppliers and friends who were extremely generous in donating prizes to our raffle! We could not have raised these vital funds without you. Thank you to all the below who gave generously to our raffle:

  • Zen Office
  • Venson Automotive Solutions
  • Bonus Electricals
  • Marley Eternit
  • Carlisle
  • Axter Ltd
  • Russell Tiles
  • Hire Station

Avonside teamed up with Emmaus earlier this year. Emmaus (pronounced em-MAY-us) is a homelessness charity with a difference. They don’t just give people a bed for the night; they offer a home, meaningful work and a sense of belonging.

The first Emmaus community opened in 1992 and there are now 25 communities spread across the UK. There are also seven Emmaus groups currently working to open new communities.

Emmaus now supports more than 640 formerly homeless people, by providing them with a home for as long as they need it and meaningful work in a social enterprise. There are plans to increase this to 1000 places by 2020, in order to meet growing demand.

Emmaus’s Chief Executive, said: “It’s great to be working with the Avonside Group. As organisations, we’re both responsible for putting a roof over people’s heads, so there’s obvious synergy here.

“The money that Avonside Group raises for us as part of this partnership will go into our companion training fund, which is used to provide training and support to the people we work with, helping them to regain the confidence that is often lost while they’re living on the streets to develop new skills that will assist them to move forward with their lives in a positive way”.
