We’re proud to be working with HOPE Charity, who help support our homeless community.

HOPE was set up to help support our homeless community, who gravitate towards the city centre of Newcastle from across the North East.  HOPE are dedicated to providing food, drinks, clothing, shoes, toiletries and sleeping bags.

After Covid-19 forced the temporary closure of their fantastic charity shop in Birtley impacting their revenue and vital funds for support we’ve offered our time and expertise to develop a much needed website presence for HOPE.

With a goal of launching within a few weeks we’ll be building a website that will help raise awareness of the vital work that HOPE carries out as well as helping them to adapt to the current shopping landscape with an online shop that will help to continue generating revenue and critical support.

If you have any of the following, you can still donate items at the shop throughout the week.  Check Facebook for details.
