The Lewis Foundation Charity Retail With A Difference!

Celebrating Community Impact at our charity The Lewis Foundation

On Thursday 12th October 2023, The Lewis Foundation hosted an event ‘Charity Retail With A Difference’ at Grosvenor Shopping Northampton

Our Co-Founders Lorraine Lewis BCAh and Lee Lewis BCAh welcomed the Mayor and Mayoress of Northampton, Retailers, West Northamptonshire Council, and our amazing stock donors to witness the power of community collaboration firsthand. At The Lewis Foundation, we believe in more than just running a charity shop – we’re about creating opportunities, supporting sustainability, and making a real difference in people’s lives.

✨ Highlights from the Event:

Why The Lewis Foundation Matters:
Our project is more than just a charity shop – it’s a platform for skill development, fundraising, and sustainable practices. By supporting us, you’re helping us make a difference in the lives of cancer patients, young people, and our community. It’s a win-win situation for everyone involved.
