A CHARITY for the homeless marked its first anniversary in Burnley with a special visit.

Emmaus, which helps homeless people rebuild their lives, welcomed the Mayor and Mayoress of Burnley.

The organisation, which became the 20th in the UK when it opened last year, has a superstore in Ivy Street, which offers renovated furniture.

Emmaus Burnley will be holding another charity curry evening at the award-winning Usha Restaurant in Rossendale Road, on Monday, February 13th, from 7 p.m.

Anyone can attend the meal, and tables can also be requested for six to 10 people.

Smaller groups may need to share.

Tickets are on sale at £14 each – half of which goes directly to Emmaus.

Tickets can be bought from trustees, or James at Emmaus House on 430860. If you have items to donate, take them to Ivy Street or phone 01282 430860 for collection – items donated must be suitable for sale.
