Give a little extra
We have recently started a new initiative in partnership with our cafe franchise - Give A Little Extra - aims to make our museum more accessible to people experiencing homelessness or financial difficulties.
When you next visit our museum café you can purchase additional items – such as a hot drink, meal, sandwich or children’s lunch box.
The additional purchases will be distributed in the form of vouchers to local charities, such as Young Homelessness North East and the West End Foodbank.
Users of the charities – which also include Crisis Skylight Newcastle, Depaul UK and Streetwise Opera - can then exchange the vouchers for food and drinks at the Museum’s café.
Our cafe partner, Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events has kick-started the Give A Little Extra scheme by donating 20 sandwiches, hot drinks and meals and lunchboxes.
