BOTH SHOPS ARE NOW OPEN
The Haltwhistle Partnership is delighted to be able to fill the gap left by the Save the Children Charity who closed their charity shops in the town in January by supporting the opening and running of Haltwhistle Community Shop and Haltwhistle Community Bookshop.
Both shops are now open in the same premises as previously on Westgate. The shop volunteers and Partnership Trustees have worked incredibly hard to fit out the shops and ensure all the necessary policies, procedures and equipment is in place and we are very grateful to them all. Our thanks also goes to our wonderful community who donated goods to re-stock both shops and contiue to support us with donations and purchases.
We are grateful to Northumberland County Council's Community Chest Fund for funding to help set up the shops with essential equipment.
All surpluses from both Community Shops will be used for charitable purposes in line with the Memorandum and Articles of Association of the Haltwhistle Partnership for the benefit of the communities of Haltwhistle and its 10 surrounding parishes.
