Hospitality and Hope

Harton Academy are incredibly proud to be working with an amazing charity based in South Shields. Hospitality and Hope are working to improve community wellbeing, reduce homelessness, increase employability and most profoundly for many, tackle food insecurity in our local area.   As many of you will already know, food banks have become a lifeline for many residents of our town, and the school is looking to make regular contributions.  We now have two permanent collection points at Harton, one in our main reception and one in the Wellness Centre entrance.  Any donations would be very gratefully received and will be passed on to the charity.  A list of items they are looking for is included with this post and donations can be brought into school by students at any time.  They may also be dropped off by anyone anytime, at our Wellness centre.

If you would like further information on the work Hospitality and Hope do, or would like to make a monetary donation, a link to their website can also be found here (  Also, if you are aware of anyone who needs the type of help that Hospitality and Hope can provide, please encourage them to visit the website and ring the number provided.  A self-referral form is also available on the website.    Many thanks and please feel free to contact the school with any queries.
