As Christians, Jesus calls us to look after the poor and to be generous, and we try to do this through the work of The Arches. We provide furniture and household items free of charge to those in emergency situations and financial hardship who have been referred to us.
We have an onsite vintage and retro shop, selling upcycled furniture, branded and vintage clothes and retro homewares.
The Attic helps raise funds for new essential items for those who are referred to The Arches. We aim to do this by selling pre loved items and adding value by restoring, re upholstering and painting selected items.
