Life and support in the heart of the community

The Guisborough Bridge Association aims to provide life and support in the heart of the Guisborough community. Set up as a community project by Churches Together in Guisborough, it is an independent charity. We aim to respond to local needs with projects for both young and old.

*Don’t be lonely * Don’t be hungry * Don’t be cold * Don’t be aimless * Don’t be lost *

Here is a selection of the projects we undertake:

Food Stop

Food Stop is a Guisborough Bridge food bank project; our response to the increasingly challenging financial situation facing individuals in our community.

Monday Friends

Monday Friends runs weekly and is a popular place at Sunnyfield House for catching up with friends over refreshments and homemade produce.


Bridge2Parents is a support group for parents of children with additional needs.

Prayer Breakfast

Meeting most months to pray for the work of The Bridge, aiming to maintain our links with local churches by rotating around who will host and lead.

Food and Fun 4 All

Fun and Food 4 All are sessions that provide crafts, games and fun for the whole

Community Shop

Our Community Shop has a very positive
atmosphere: we have plenty of fresh things for free and after paying £3 customers leave with around 10 non-perishable items.
