New location for 5p Bus depot

July 2013

Our 5p Bus depot is on the move! The base for our 5p Bus service is currently in the process of moving from Swalwell in Gateshead to Holy Cross in Sunderland.

The former garages at our Holy Cross Nursing and Residential Care Home are being converted to provide a series of sorting areas and office space which will mean the new depot for the 5p Bus has a much more central location for its regional operations.

At the moment, we don’t have a direct telephone number or email contact set up for the new depot, but if you have clothing donations we are still able to accept them at Holy Cross during our usual opening hours. You can find these and our new address below.

If you would like any more information about the 5p Bus and its work, you can contact the Community Services Team at our Head Office on 0191 228 0111.
