Thank you on behalf of the 240 families each year who receive furniture to start a new life and the 1500 who sit to eat food they need but can’t buy, and the 360 people who buy a cycle for less than a weeks bus fare or the 16 vulnerable adults who enjoy meaningful work experience. At St Paul’s Centre we employ 16 local people and provide room for over 40 people to volunteer more than 7000 hours each year.
If you want to understand our journey more we have written a book which invites you to walk with us through the past 30 years. The funds generated from the book also contribute to the income of the charity to order a copy: https://stpaulscentre.org.uk/book

Donate a piece of furniture or an unused bike –
We are committed to recycling items that can still be useful to others. Some of these items are given to those in need. Other items are sold and the money is re-invested in the work of St Paul’s Centre.
Offer to volunteer. We have lots of opportunities to volunteer, for example helping out at our Food Bank. Click here to find out more.
Take part in a sponsored event, for example, run for us in the Great North Run or get on your bike and ride Coast to Coast. These are great ways to help us raise money and you get fit in the process too.
We have a Just Giving Account which makes it really easy for your friends and family to sponsor you. Click here to be taken to our Just Giving Page.
