ABOUT US

Queens Market will provide local businesses support and education to work together and generate change, reinvest in activities to support further regeneration and expansion of Morecambe and this initiative.

 

WAYS TO TRADE WITH THIS SOCIAL ENTERPRISE 

Queens Market is essentially an ongoing community project whereby we support the fledgling businesses and encourage growth of these businesses into the local community and beyond. The moment staff and visitors walk through the door, they are welcomed into the family – the support is ongoing. Boasting a large hall, many events and clubs can take advantage of this space, with profits going back into further projects which evolves with the changing times. We have ambitious plans to help the local and wider community, such as with transport, odd jobs, volunteering, resolve social isolation and become the forefront of community services needs to support the social services.

We have approached Lancaster & Morecambe College who have shown interest in renting some of our space and working with Queens Market Morecambe to provide learning opportunities.

ABOUT US

Emmaus supports formerly homeless people by giving them a home within a community, meaningful work in a social enterprise and an opportunity to get back on their feet again.

Emmaus communities are not hostels for the homeless; they provide a home for as long as someone needs it. For many, this support and stability is like the family they don’t have, providing a safe environment in which to settle and rebuild their lives.

Whilst Emmaus is an international charity and there are over 350 communities across the world and in the UK alone 30, offering over a 1000 beds for people who are homeless, each is an individual charity and has to pay for its own local running itself. We are not nationally or government funded and believe we should pay our own way via running various social enterprises.

Emmaus Preston has a house for up to 26 people and runs the largest charity shop in the country, the former B and Q just off North Road Preston, as well as a store on Fishergate (Preston Town Centre). Both of these stores sell a mix of new and donated goods including washing machines, cookers, refrigeration, new beds, bedroom furniture, office furniture and much more. We additionally have a smaller store on Deepdale Mill Street selling just donated goods. The stores are staffed and run solely by our Companions, formerly homeless people, and all the income from the stores directly pays for the food, support, training, activities and move on for the people who live in Emmaus Preston.

If you are an individual or an organisation purchasing items please spend your money with us and not only will you get great prices but you will directly help to support someone who was homeless to never end up on the streets again.
