Dr Mike Domnall

Mike, who is Reader in Health Sciences in the Institute of Population Health, and Director of the National Drug Evidence Centre, has been a Trustee of homelessness charity Emmaus for the last five years.

He said: "Emmaus Mossley offers a home and work to previously homeless and unemployed people. It is not just a shop - it is home to our 24 ‘Companions’.

"The project finances itself by collecting and selling donated goods such as furniture, bric-a-brac, antiques, electrical appliances, clothing, books, toys, etc. Do come and visit."

The charity was founded in 1949 in Paris and has now spread to 44 countries; there are now 19 communities in the UK.
