Metis director goes the extra mile!

Emmaus Hampshire is a vibrant and thriving social enterprise community for the homeless based in Winchester; providing a home and meaningful work experience, along with personal development to help maximise their potential and secure their entry back to independent living.

Metis Homes & Burton Property have been associated with Emmaus now for nearly 10 years since the building of the community in 2009: when we first became involved I remember a Trustee describing the purpose of the Community as “giving a homeless person a bed but also a reason to get out of it” this perfectly encapsulates the spirit of the community.

Currently there are 26 rooms for the homeless (called “Companions”). Emmaus have a plan to convert an underused part of the Community building into 3 further Companion rooms and it is this specific project that Metis Homes is supporting and raising funds for. We are off to a good start as support has been pledged from the original design team and Contractor and we have some funds pledged already: the whole project is about £60,000 and I am looking to raise £5,000…or more!

So, with this objective, on 30th April, Tony Burton, Non-executive director of Metis Homes will be walking 70 miles around the Isle of Wight coast path come rain or shine, accompanied in some sections by some of the Companions.

He would greatly appreciate any support you can offer; please pledge via the link below:
