St Cuthberts Care's 5p Bus project was launched in 2008 to support those in dire need. It is a mobile clothes distribution service that travels around our region's neediest areas, offering essential good quality second-hand clothes, bedding, children's toys, books and on occasions, brand new toiletries, all for just 5p an item. It also provides information about further key support services we provide.
The project covers both south and north areas of our region on a daily basis. Our distinctive yellow bus currently visits over 120 locations each month and is resourced through a constant supply of donated goods received from generous individuals, schools and churches throughout the region.
Our service relies completely upon the generosity of our supporters.
