It was a total joy to officially open the new Helping Hand shop in Hyde town centre this week. The new space incorporates a tea and coffee area as well as the charity shop itself – a lovely space and a fab addition to Hyde. It raises money for local churches, and helps people looking for employment gain experience through volunteering, including through referrals from the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme, Job Centre Plus and social services. It’s open Wednesdays to Saturdays, 10-4. Please give it your support!
