HOMELESSNESS charity Emmaus Mossley is gearing up for a special evening charity sale next Thursday (March 21) at its secondhand superstore.

The "Emmaus Spring Sale! will kickstart a week-long sale of vintage, retro, modern and pre-owned clearance items.

The event will be a real showcase of all things Emmaus – ideal for anyone interested in unique furniture, retro fashion, bric-a-brac, bargain tools, project pieces or something interesting for your home, the organisation says.

Paul Barnes, one of the people supported at Emmaus Mossley, said: “Turn your spring into summer and come along to our next event. These evenings are a great introduction for those who have never visited Emmaus before. I enjoy the events as it’s good to welcome some new faces along with seeing lots of our passionate Emmaus regulars.”

Emmaus Mossley supports 26 formerly homeless people by providing them with a home and work in a community setting. The charity runs a social enterprise in Mossley, selling donated and upcycled furniture, household goods, clothes and vintage wares.

Hazel Hodkinson, retail manager at Emmaus Mossley, said: “Like many people, here at Emmaus Mossley we’re planning to have a big spring clean. We’ll be raiding our sorting rooms, making space in our stores and collecting together some of the long-lost treasures that have been donated to us over the years.

“At our Emmaus Spring Sale event, all these items will be out for sale and Emmaus Mossley will be full of unique displays, themed areas and rummage boxes to inspire and excite. Hopefully many of our supporters will be able to attend, bag a bargain or few and help to support our charity.”

The event will take place from 6pm at Emmaus Mossley, Longlands Mill, Queen Street, Mossley.
