Homelessness charity Emmaus Sheffield is extending the range of electrical goods it sells at its secondhand shop.

While many charities will not accept electrical items, Emmaus provides a full testing service, which means goods can be approved as fit for sale at its Sipelia Works secondhand store, on Cadman Street.

Charley Holman, Emmaus retail manager, said: “We have everything from lamps, CD players, toasters and kettles through to bigger items like cookers, washers and fridges, at good prices and in excellent condition.

“It means you can equip a new home for a fraction of the cost you would pay on the high street. You can pick up an excellent-quality fridge, freezer or washing machine for £60 to £80, while many smaller items are available for as little as £3.”

The only electrical items the charity does not accept or sell are TVs, microwaves or unwanted computer equipment.

The shop is open Mondays to Fridays, from 9am to 4.30pm, Saturdays, from 9am to 4pm, and Sundays, from 11am to 4pm.
