brick-giving

The Brick Giving aims to put an end to poverty and homelessness in Wigan and Leigh. Since the start of the COVID-19 crisis, The Brick has faced a reduction in donations and increased demand for our services from people in need. We are determined to continue supporting the community to ensure no one gets left behind.

The Brick Re-Use has been set up to help educate people in the Wigan Borough about recycling and re-use. We also turn unwanted goods into lovingly restored furniture for families in need.
