Support Arch

Put simply, our work wouldn’t be possible without you, so there are a number of ways that you can get involved and show your support.

Make a donation

You can make a single or regular donation online by visiting our JustGiving page, or you can donate by SMS (anything from £1 – £10) by texting ‘ARCH01’ followed by the amount you are donating to 70070.

You can also raise money for us by taking part in an event and setting up an online fundraising page here.

Join Lyme Lottery

You can support our Elizabeth House refuge by playing Lyme Lottery, a weekly online lottery created to support local causes in Newcastle-Under-Lyme.

Tickets are £1 per week, with 60% going to local good causes. You have to be in it to win it.

Supplies we need

Most of the people we work with have very few personal possessions. Our accommodation projects are well-equipped but they do suffer from some wear and tear, which means we need to replace household items and furniture regularly. We also provide customers with items to help them in crisis situations.

We welcome non-perishable food like tins of baked beans, soup, fish, vegetables, any tea, coffee, sugar. Or dried packet items like soup and savoury rice, pasta and cereals.

We only give out brand new toiletries such as soap, shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste and shower gel, or full packs of sanitary products and nappies.

Many women arrive at our refuges having fled their homes quickly, and we give them emergency packs containing basic clothing and toiletries, as well as nightwear, underwear, deodorant, a flannel, shampoo, shower gel, a toothbrush, toothpaste, and a hairbrush. We really appreciate donations of any good quality or brand new items to help fill these packs.
Many families arrive at our refuges with very few personal items. We welcome donations of good quality clothing for women and children but can only accept brand new bedding and towels.

We also like to give small Christmas gifts, Easter eggs, and selection boxes to our customers in our refuges. If you would like to support us in this way give us a call.

our eBay shop

The Arch eBay project has come to an end. A huge thanks to everyone who donated to or bought from us, and to the volunteers who worked tirelessly on the project.
