Emmaus Gloucester celebrated its 20th anniversary in March 2014. It all started in 1994 with the opening of a shop in Nailsworth, which was initially run by volunteers. Income from the shop was used to set up a community in 2003 on Chequers road in Gloucester. The 23 companions at the community carry out the usual work done by Emmaus communities: collecting, sorting through, repairing and selling goods at low prices at four different second-hand shops. Emmaus Gloucestershire supplies its shops by making collections and receiving donations, and with clothes collected at its drop-off points. Lastly, companions also get the chance to receive free training in health and safety, food hygiene and manual handling.
