Welcome to this latest edition of our newsletter which we hope you will find interesting. At Emmaus Bristol we are always trying to do things better and to innovate to change the world around us. We have had a partnership with a Doctors’ practice and we have pioneered the use of Credit Union Accounts for our Companions – enabling them to save and indeed borrow in a safe financial environment. We also recognise that other Communities around the Emmaus Movement are doing new things and we learn from each other. Emmaus Mossley inspired us by pioneering a radio advert – you may have heard our advert on Jack FM? The purpose of our innovations is to improve life for our Companions, to bring in more business so we can become self supporting and to contribute to the life of others through solidarity. Our latest innovation is our new website – see the article on this page. Do have a look and let your friends know about it. We hope you like it – but do tell us how we might improve it (within reason!)
Finally, thank you very much for your support – as always it is much appreciated.
With best wishes
Richard Pendlebury MBE DL
