Makenziee said: “I want to try and get as many donations as I can, as this charity helped so many people – took them off the streets when they had nowhere else to live, given qualifications, gave them their own room and bathroom and three meals a day.

“They’ve just got to work to live there. They’ve changed so many lives. I’ve met so many amazing, kindhearted people there. If you can’t donate, please share my Facebook page so we all can help this amazing charity.

“I’ve done this twice for Emmaus now, but I’ve been struggling to raise money. I’ve planned to do this and got everyone together. I’m going to keep doing this two times a year to try and raise as much as I can.”

Social enterprise Emmaus provides accommodation, work and support to people who have experienced homelessness and social isolation, providing a home for as long as an individual needs it.

Emmaus said living in a stable environment with the opportunity to work helps their residents regain lost self-esteem and confidence.
