Grantham Nationwide Building Society donates more than £45k to Newark Emmaus Trust to help tackle young homelessness
A branch of Nationwide Building Society has donated £45,398 to a charity that provides temporary accommodation and support to homeless young people.
Nicola Burley, chief executive of the Newark Emmaus Trust, received the donation from Grantham branch manager Joanne Hetherington-Field and local director David Barker.
The grant was part of Nationwide’s application scheme aimed at tackling housing issues in local communities.
Nicola said: “We are ecstatic to receive this grant, which will help us to support our residents after they move on to independent living.
“We will be able to continue to support them in their new homes, which is vitally important in ensuring that they manage their tenancies and fully integrate back into the community.
“Thanks to the Nationwide we can carry out this work for at least two years.”
Joanne said: “We are excited to see the difference that this will make to their clients and look forward to finding ways to volunteer with them over the coming months.”
