St. Alban's opens temporary charity shop

We have opened a charity shop to raise funds for our groundbreaking renewable nergy scheme. St. Alban’s Church in Earsdon hopes to raise several thousand pounds at the shop which is in the Beacon Centre in North Shields.

The shop which will be run by volunteers with donations from the general public will support the church’s renewable energy project which began with the installation of a biomass boiler at St. Alban’s in 2012. 

St. Alban’s is raising the money to repay a loan which was taken out in order to complete the ambitious project. St. Alban’s is the only church in the North East to heat two Grade II listed buildings from a biomass boiler.   

The Vicar of St. Alban’s, the Reverend Andrew France, said, “The shop in North Shields gives us the ideal opportunity to raise money for our project and tell people what we are doing in terms of renewable energy. Hopefully we will be able to encourage other to think about switching to renewables.”

The shop is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10.00 a.m. till 4.00 p.m. until 7th June 2014.
