Emmaus charity furniture shops

Think of charity shops and you usually think of a normal-looking unit on a high street. But in Bolton, the charity Emmaus has taken over a former military barracks and filled it with furniture.

Derby Barracks is the city’s largest charity shop, and offers furniture for every room of the house.

It’s one of a range of specialist stores Emmaus runs across the country, including a  bedroom store in Brighton. You can find your”local branch here.

Emmaus is a charity supporting homeless people with work and accommodation. In 2017/18, it managed to save over 12,000 tonnes of goods from going to landfill.
