Testimonials about ASTOP

The Global Educational Trust have a GET Free Books shop in Bishop Auckland and having visited the shop recently I was very impressed. Books are saved from landfill and offered free to customers, and customers in turn may bring in their unwanted books, in this way books are given a new lease of life benefitting the environment and at the same time promoting literacy. An innovative and worthwhile use of what was previously an empty shop, and a valuable contribution to the revitalisation of the town centre, this is an initiative I wholeheartedly support.

HRH Prince Charles’ Business in the Community charity runs a Business Connector programme, where employees and secondees to BitC, like myself from HMRC, build bridges between the community and business at a grassroots level.

My colleagues and I have found ASTOP’s social goal of transforming unused spaces for good causes to be easy to understand, explain and introduce to charities and landlords/agents alike.

The team’s enthusiasm is so infectious that I scout “To Let’ signs and now see opportunities that were blind to me before.

Thank you for your support to BitC and our commercial and social networks.
