We are pleased to donate the contents of our Earls Park showhouse to local homelessness charity Emmaus Gloucestershire


Local homelessness charity Emmaus Gloucestershire has kicked off the year with a furniture donation worth £7000 from Housebuilder Matthew Homes.

The Hertfordshire-based business builds homes throughout the south of England and donated the entire contents of a four-bedroom show house marketed by Michael Tuck Land and New Homes in Gloucester to help the local charity raise funds to support its work.The donated furniture, household items and soft furnishings, which would have otherwise gone to waste, will be sold in the charity’s five Emmaus shops across Gloucestershire. All the profits will go towards providing a home, support and training to people who have been homeless.

Emmaus Gloucestershire

Chief Executive at Emmaus Gloucestershire, Joe Feeley, said:

“We are once again facing an income shortfall with the temporary closure of our shops due to the national lockdown, but this generous donation has helped immensely to lift the spirits of our retail team. Social distancing measures and restrictions during the pandemic has made it difficult to collect furniture from people’s properties, so to receive so many high-quality items from Matthew Homes has come at the perfect time. I would like to thank the team at Matthew Homes for thinking of Emmaus Gloucestershire, it means the world to us when local businesses recognise the work we do and want to help us.”

Emmaus Gloucestershire offers people who have been homeless or socially excluded the opportunity to rebuild their lives by providing a home within a communal building, work experience to gain future employment, daily support and funding training. The charity funds its work by selling second-hand items in its Cheltenham, Gloucester, Nailsworth and Stroud shops.

Matthew Homes

Daniel Gallagher, Deputy Chair/Sales Director at Matthew Homes, said:

“we are pleased to help out Emmaus Gloucestershire.  Their work to house and to provide work experience is so exceptional and such value that we felt it was appropriate to support them with this donation.  Times are very difficult for so many individuals and organisations at this time and it is with great pleasure that we have been given this opportunity to contribute to their great work”

Matthew Homes has been established for more than forty years and with experience in building going back to the 1950s, they offer a diverse range of homes for a variety of different requirements.  This can be seen at Earls Park off Bristol Road, Gloucester which is being marketed by Michael Tuck Land and New Homes.

Hear what our clients have to say...

Michael Tuck Lettings in Quedgeley have managed our rental property for the past 11+ years.

During this time their professionalism has never dropped. In the early days, Ian, Graham and Vikki-Lee were a huge help to a novice landlord. I’m pleased to say they are still there with a helping hand. Claire has always been the nudge I needed for the necessary insurance and safety checks. Having had some difficult times over the past couple of years I would like to say a special thank you to Lianne who has been there to help wherever she could.

We are in the process of selling the property and as expected Miles and Otis are dealing with everything with Tucks usual professionalism.

I have no hesitation in recommending this lovely, friendly office.

Linda Parker

I cannot recommend Michael Tuck Estate Agents enough.

They were so professional and so prompt with their communication. In particular we would like to mention Charlie for his regular updates and extremely helpful service in the sale of my mothers house. We were in a particularly long chain, and he went over and above to assist us in the communications between the buyers and sellers in order for our chain to proceed. He even contacted Solicitors and helped progress the exchange.

“We are certain if it wasn’t for him we wouldn’t have sold our house! We cannot thank him and his team enough.”

Kelly Durkin

Miles has gone above and beyond to ensure buying our first house has been a smooth process. He has offered clarification and reassurance at all steps of the journey, making us feel like valued clients.

“We would recommend Michael Tuck Estate Agents.”

Hollie Blunt

Michael Tuck New Homes in Gloucester assisted us selling three phases of our development in Kingsway, Gloucester.

“All of the staff were very professional and knowledgeable sales people who represented our company as if it were their own.”

If we were to need help selling our homes in the Gloucester ara again they would be the first phone call i’d make.

Stephen Holbrook. Abbey Homes

Tony and John, Abbeymead branch, supported us during very difficult circumstances (and we don’t just mean Covid!)

The same applies to other staff when answering queries etc.

“They were unfailingly courteous and returned phone calls and emails promptly.”

David Duncan

I have been a customer of Michael Tuck Lettings in Abbeymead for coming up to 2 years now.

I would like to highlight Kurt and James for there forever ending support and excellent communication. Their joint efforts have filled me with confidence in the ability to keep my family safe in a home we love.

No matter the complexity or need they are always on hand to support and come to some form of reasonable resolution.

For this reason I would recommend Michael Tuck to all my family and friends and will hopefully continue to stay a customer of Michaels Tucks until I purchase my own home. Thank you

“Being a contact centre manager I know how important customer service is and I must say that Michael Tuck has not disappointed.”

Jay Preece

Miles and the team have been brilliant from start to finish during the sale of our house.

Miles especially went above and beyond with sales chasing when I think most other people would have probably given up! Really happy with the service.

“Such a friendly and professional team and nothing was too much trouble.”

Anna England

I was recommended Michael Tuck Estate Agents in Abbeymead by a friend, thank you friend!

I would like to say a big thank you and well done to the team who are very friendly, helpful and have taken the strain out of what was a fairly long house sale.

Special thanks go to Chloe and Tony for their positivity and Chloe thank you for your good humour which lifted me during the long process!

“I would highly recommend them for a first class service”

Michael Tuck Lettings in Abbeymead have been a fantastic letting agents looking after our house for the past 17 years.

We have recently sold the house with the sales department.  Kurt has looked after us incredibly well during the 17 years of lettings and Tony, Andy and Chloe have made the selling very easy. Thank you

“The staff are professional, approachable and easy to contact.”

Claire Rawlinson

I have recently bought and sold through the Gloucester branches and cannot praise Miles and the team highly enough.

In what has been a very testing time for the industry, Miles and all the staff have worked tirelessly in my purchase and even more so my sale.

Thoroughly recommend Tucks every time. Special thanks to Otis. Thank you guys it’s been an absolute pleasure.

“Their drive and communication skills have been amazing.”
