THE Beacon community hub has become an Ebay seller, to help fund its work.

The centre, which opened on Kendrick Street in Stroud in August 2019, is located in the former Kendrick Street Gallery site.

Beacon co-founder Marcus Blackett said: "Looking forward to our second year, we need to find creative ways to fund what we do.

"We have hosted art exhibitions, live music evenings, meetings, workshops, and a sanctuary.

"Everyday brought in members of the public who wanted to talk to us about what is going on in the world; it has been fantastic to hear such a wide range of views.

"Feedback shows the community has benefitted from the connections that have been created here.

"To help fund The Beacon’s work, we have now become your local Ebay seller, providing a service for you in return for a small fee.

"If you have a pre-loved item worth at least £20 or more, we can sell it for you.

"The fee we retain will go towards our work.

"Get in touch on, attaching at least two clear photos of the item, and the minimum price you will accept.

"If you want to help by donating an item to the Ebay shop that would fantastic too.

"Please do not leave anything in or outside the shop at 20 Kendrick Street, unless pre-arranged.

"Keep an eye out for some super things in the window. At the moment this includes a guitar and a set of chisels."
