BOLTON’S Virgin Money Store is helping to create festive cheer this Christmas by collecting selection boxes and other food and clothing items for homeless charity Emmaus.

Emmaus provides a home and work for up to 20 people in Bolton, and hundreds more nationwide, who have experienced homelessness, helping them to find a way to move on with their lives.

Vicky Carr, Virgin Money Bolton Store Manager said: “The Bolton Virgin Money Store is collecting selection boxes on behalf of a local good-cause, Emmaus. They play an important part in our local community and do a lot to help those in need. Thanks to all who have made a donation so far, it will really help to make a difference this Christmas.’’
