Solidarity Book Sale
In aid of:
- Anti-Freeze, Hove
- Roundabout Nursery, Whitehawk.
- Crawley Open House, Crawley
On Saturday 28th August the Companions of Emmaus Brighton & Hove will be holding their first Solidarity sale since lock down restrictions have been eased.
So why not pop along on the day and buy a book, a bag of books, or a box of books and you choose how much you want to pay.
All money raised from the sale of books on Saturday 28th August will be shared between the three chosen charities.
What is Solidarity?
One of the most important parts of the Emmaus ethos is Solidarity. This means working to help someone less fortunate than yourself.
This can be very valuable for Emmaus Companions as it is often key to helping to rebuild self-esteem, proving that everyone has the capacity to make a difference to the lives of others.
Acts of Solidarity can vary from raising money for a charity that means a lot to the Companion or Community, to doing work to help someone in the wider local Community.
Some Companions choose to support Emmaus projects in other parts of the world by sending donations to those who may struggle to collect them themselves. Shipping container units are regularly filled with furniture and other goods collected from Communities all over the UK. These are then shipped to countries which struggle to access many of these items. These overseas Emmaus groups then sell the goods to raise money for their own Communities.
Emmaus Brighton & Hove holds a Solidarity sale each year to raise money for Emmaus projects in poorer parts of the world. This sale would usually take place on the last Saturday in June at our Open Day & Summer fair.
