Team Emmaus NS is running the Alton Towers 10k on Saturday 11th November '23 to support the Beds for Kids campaign for local children.

Many people living in poverty simply cannot afford basic furniture. Our charity Emmaus North Staffs works to tackle furniture poverty by helping to change that. In recent times, weve sadly seen a big increase in the number of families asking for beds for their children.

No child should sleep on the floor.

Its heart-breaking and we want to change this which is why weve launched Beds for Kids.

Having very little sleep, or no sleep, can have a serious affect on all of us, and even more so the physical and mental development of a young child in their formative years.

We speak to hundreds of families each month, and for a child to be able to have their own comforts has such a positive impact in so many ways and transforms their lives for good. John Webbe, our charity's Executive Lead.

Can you help give a child a good nights sleep?

Each £175 raised will enable us to provide a complete brand new Bed Pack (with bed, mattress & bedding) for a local child in Stoke-on-Trent and surrounding areas.

Thanks so much for your support.
