Welcome to the Emmaus Cambridge Community
The Emmaus Cambridge Community at Landbeach was the first to be established in the UK. Opened in 1992 by Terry Waite CBE, the charity is home to up to thirty people who were formerly homeless and earns its income from running a second-hand shop just off the A10 which sells a wide range of second-hand furniture, household goods and collectables. The community is situated just outside the village of Landbeach, north of Cambridge itself, and works closely with other organizations in the area to support those people who are homeless or trapped by poverty. Emmaus Gloucestershire has made a short video about the work of Emmaus.
The Emmaus Cambridge Community second-hand shop is is an Aladdin’s cave full of treasures! We sell all manner of second-hand goods from furniture, bric-a-brac, records and books to cookers, fridges and washing machines, electrical goods and bicycles to name but a few.
