December and January can be a quiet period for our suppliers, so we have approached them and are excited to be able to offer a fantastic promotion over the Christmas & New Year period.

If you buy two or more pairs of glasses, you will receive a £75 discount on your second and subsequent pairs between the 12th December 2019 and 4th January 2020. As well as your £75 discount we will donate £20 to our Christmas Appeal supporting The People’s Kitchenand Safe Families for Children. 

The People’s Kitchen probably needs know no introduction. For over 30 years they have been supporting those who need help in Newcastle. Established thanks to one woman’s determination, the organisation has grown enormously from its humble beginnings under the railway arches at Dean Street, but their philosophy remains the same. They continue to offer clothes, food, warm surroundings, and a warm welcome to anyone that needs their help.

I asked Sarah Bhatoe, the Newcastle Senior Community Volunteer Manager at award-winning charity, Safe Families for Children, what the organisation is all about,

“At Safe Families for Children, we believe that no one should feel alone. Yet, loneliness is a big problem in our society; 1 in 4 of us are impacted by loneliness or isolation. Safe Families exists to create relationship and connection because no one should feel alone, and everyone deserves to belong. With and through primarily the local church, Safe Families offers support, hope and belonging to improve the lives of those in our communities. We train, equip, and empower volunteers ready to be matched with a local family wanting some help. By partnering with Local Authorities, we ensure we offer high-quality support to volunteers and families alike. Stabilising families before they reach a breaking point is key to reducing the number of children who need to go into care. It’s amazing what the power of simply being there for someone can do; we really can make a difference in seeing our local communities thrive."
