A team of formerly homeless people from Emmaus Leeds have visited Paris to take part in a Europe-wide charity sale to raise money for charitable projects worldwide.

Four companions who live and work at Emmaus Leeds, along with two staff members teamed up with Emmaus Mossley to fill a van with donated items to sell at the Emmaus Paris Salon.

This annual event brings together over 120 communities from across Europe in one big charity sale.

Emmaus Leeds supports 26 formerly homeless people by providing them with a stable home and meaningful work for as long as they need it.

The charity has its main community base and social enterprise on St Mary’s Street and runs two additional shops at Kirkgate Market.
