Our festive stock is flying out but we’ve still got plenty left. Pop in and grab a bargain before it’s too late. The money we raise goes towards the Foodbank and making sure families across Nottingham don’t go hungry this Christmas.

Often we are gifted items by companies or individuals along with an apology that ‘Its not much’. Last weekend we grouped together some of these donations to make up hygiene bags. These were sent out alongside our food parcels to those who struggling with hygiene poverty. We would like to thank IN KIND DIRECT, COLLECTECO, JAMBONS WAREHOUSE, NHS TRUST BRADFORD, AMAZON, UPLANDS and DEBENHAMS. Each of whom have enabled us to help over 200 people.

Mesopotamia has been shut for the past week, it has given the volunteers time to sort the donations out and restock the shop. The shop is looking very tidy and we have lots of new things in for a cheap reasonable price. All your donations help and go along way.

So don’t wait pop in today and GRAB YOURSELF A BARGAIN!!!!!!!!!

You may have heard that our previous van was involved in an accident and we still have not been able to replace it. Even once we have found a new van the current Covid rules mean that we would not be able to come out to collect. We thank you for thinking of us and ask, if you are in a position to hold on to your goods until the present conditions have relaxed please do so.

Without your precious donations we are unable to raise the funds needed to continue our work and feed those who are in need in Nottingham.

Please remember to subscribe to our website for regular updates.

How lockdown affects Mesopotamia

Unfortunately we have had to temporarily close the doors to our charity shop as we are not classed as essential. We are however still running both the foodbank and distributing essentials on an emergency basis.

If you are in need of support and think we can help, please contact us via our online referral form. Alternatively you can call us on 0115 9780444 and leave a message on our answer machine.

Different ways that you can still help Mesopotamia

  • Donate food and toiletries at Sainsburys on Perry Road (a one minute walk from our shop). We have a collection box just after the tills.
  • Donate cash. Working alongside FareShare we are able to do a lot with very little, so ever pound makes a difference.
  • For clothing, bric a brac and larger items, if possible, please hang on to them for when we are in a position to take them off your hands.
