In November 2021 we realised our dream of opening the 'Hug on a Tray Hub', a charity shop and meeting place to host events and social gatherings to aid our cause.
Our shop is based in Otley at 15 Manor Square, LS21 3AP.
Opening times are Tuesday, Thursday and Friday - 10 'till 4.30 and Saturday - 10 'till 3.00.
For a long time we had been looking for a small, affordable lock up shop here in Otley where we can host tombolas and events under cover through the winter months so we don’t lose money. It also provides storage space, and serve as a base for Hug on a Tray, a ‘Hub’ where we can expand and interact with community in the town. We hold events that would interest children such as Santa’s Grotto at Christmas and other themed events. The shop sells new products that have already been donated.
Before we opened, the work to renovate was done either totally free or with no labour costs, we are amazed at the kindness and generosity of so many people wanting to make a difference in the lives of others.
Our open day on the 15th November 2021 was a great success, with Otley Town Cryer, Terry Ford and Otley Mayoress, Sylvia, in attendance and press both locally and nationally.
Please visit the 'Hug on a Tray Hub' in Otley, we' look forward to meeting you.
