British comedian Harry Enfield will visit a homeless charity in Brighton, on the south coast of the UK, this Wednesday.

The comedian will visit the local Emmaus Community in Hove, and will meet with staff and residents. He will also volunteer at the community’s second hand furniture store.

The facility offers over 40 ex-homeless people a home, work and the chance to rebuild their lives in a supportive environment.

“I think Emmaus is a really good idea,” said Enfield. “It gives people the opportunity to work for themselves and others. It doesn’t just provide a temporary, sticking plaster solution to homelessness, but offers real and lasting change.”

“The Harry Enfield visit has provoked really good response from all members of the community,” said Christine Squince, Emmaus general manager. “Everyone is looking forward to him coming and people are very keen to meet him. It’s good for us to have someone coming along to community who has such a broad appeal to both the residents of the community and our customers. We’ll be giving him a private tour of the community to let him know what goes on here and then he’ll be in the shop from about 2pm where customers will have the chance to say hello and have their pictures taken with him.”
