The Why Gallery is a charity shop with a difference. Set up by local cancer counselling charity, We Hear You, it sells local artists’ beautiful and affordable work with all sales commission supporting WHY’s counselling work.
It started out as a six month test, thanks to funding by Santander. It sells work by artists and craftspeople most of whom don’t have their own selling outlet. It’s done well enough to continue as a long-term venture.
All the sales commission goes directly to the work of charity We Hear You (WHY). WHY provides free, professional counselling to anyone affected by cancer or other life-threatening illness.
So shopping here makes you feel good. You support a local artist, you support a charity doing great work, and you end up with a beautiful object to own or to give to a loved one! Win, win, win
