    Emmaus Gloucestershire has opened a shop in Nailsworth that sells upcycled furniture, allowing customers to have the opportunity to bring old furniture in to be restored or adapted to particular tastes, reports the Stroud News and Journal.

    Profits from the shop will be used to provide a home and support for the people they work with whilst offering them work serving customers, displaying goods and making deliveries.

    Volunteers will run the social enterprise and opportunities will be given to the homeless people Emmaus work with to help them gain experience and improve their confidence.

    Judith Wheeler shop manager said: “Customers will be able to buy well-known brands such as Ercol and G-Plan upcycled or restored back to their former glory. We can also bring personal pieces of furniture back to life and get them looking as good as new.”
