Jacob’s Well Appeal raises funds by fundraising, including our book sales, and generous donations given by our supporters. We also have two charity shops – one in Beverley and one in Bridlington, as well as two franchise shops. These franchise shops are run by the Gateway Church in Withernsea and Filey, and Jacob’s Well Appeal provides merchandise which they sell and give us a share of the profits.

Our two ‘charity plus shops’ are christian bookshops, selling new christian literature, gifts and cards. They also sell second hand clothing, bric-a-brac and books and both have a cafe where you can go for a drink, a piece of cake and a chat. Our managers are happy to talk through any issues you may have and offer prayer if you would like it. If you’ve not visited us recently, please pop in for a look around.

Our Bridlington shop is on the promenade next to the new Leisure World.

Our manager at the Beverley shop is moving to Hastings to be with her family and we pray that she will be happy with her new situation. Many customers and volunteers will miss Sue – thank you for all your hard work.

Our Beverley shop is on Ladygate, very close to St Mary’s Church.

We have two new managers, Sally and Ian, starting in Beverley who are going to ‘job share’. They have spent their first week shadowing Sue and next week will be setting out on their own. I am sure Sally and Ian will put their own stamp on the shop and if you are passing please pop in and greet them – they’ll be happy to make you a cup of tea!

The Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. Numbers 6:25
