“Emmaus Youth Club

Lindsay & Derek Shurvell have played a crucial role in the enduring success of the Emmaus Youth Club in Sharpthorne & West Hoathly for over 22 years.

Their selfless dedication as volunteers has ensured the club not only remains operational but also offers relevant, engaging and enjoyable activities for its attendees.

Despite managing two businesses, Lindsay & Derek consistently introduce new initiatives to enrich the club’s offerings, demonstrating their unwavering commitment.

The Youth Club serves as a vital social hub for young people in the community, providing invaluable opportunities for social interaction and development.

Without it, the social growth of these young individuals would likely suffer.

Members of the Club hold Lindsay & Derek in high regard, a testament to their effective leadership and management.”

We had a lovely tea too !
