Give a Gift of Hope with Emmanuel House

Christmas ain't all about getting a new lego set and gorging on chocolate

Over the last year, the number of people found to be sleeping rough in Nottingham has increased from thirteen to forty. With temperatures regularly falling below zero, rough sleepers are at risk of severe illness, and even death, the longer they spend outside.

Emmanuel House is Nottingham’s only open-access service of its kind, providing around eighty hot meals to service users every day, with their Winter Shelter – open from November to April every year – providing emergency shelter and a warm bed for those desperately in need.

This year, to cope with the national rise in homelessness, Emmanuel House are asking for your help. Running entirely on donations and contributions of goodwill, the service receives absolutely no statutory funding. They’re asking for you to send a Gift of Hope in the form of a one-off donation or by becoming a friend of Emmanuel House by making regular donations. That way, they can continue to keep people out of the cold, and help the most vulnerable people in our community.

The Gift of Hope on Local Giving

We have a favour to ask…

LeftLion is Nottingham’s meeting point for information about what’s going on in our city, from the established organisations to the grassroots. We want to keep what we do free to all to access, but increasingly we are relying on revenue from our readers to continue. Can you spare a few quid each month to support us?
