Friends of JSC

It's the time of year to purchase our 'Friends of JSC' card. We were delighted with the response last year with hundreds of renewals and many new customers. We hope to recruit even more 'Friends' this year and all the money raised is put towards fundraising for the House. More »

At £6 for the year the card offers great value for money giving 10% off all purchases made at our Café counter. We also have an introductory offer on the back of the membership card for 'buy six drinks and get one free' - just make sure to get the cups on the back of the card stamped.

So why not drop in and become one of our 'Friends' today? Just ask at Reception.

As the House approaches its 50th Anniversary in 2016 fundraising is very important and purchase of our loyalty cards makes a significant contribution. » Less

The feedback for our garden is always very positive and in the Spring people comment on how much better they feel just seeing the new shoots pop up and the vivid colours arrive.

Allotment Christmas Tree

Our group excelled itself this year, with their entry into the annual Loughborough Community Christmas Tree Festival, held at All Saint's Parish Church, Steeple Row, Loughborough.

Their tree is entitled the "John Storer House Seed Tree" and as the name suggests, all of the decorations have been painstakingly made from a variety of seeds. More »

Visitors to the tree are encouraged to help themselves to a free packet of seeds to plant next year. The tree will be on display at John Storer House for all to see, after the event. » Less

Market Traders Come Through Following Theft From JSH

Following the theft of funds from the charity globe at John Storer House, Loughborough market traders have dug deep to help us, and donated £300 to replace the stolen donations.

On behalf of trustees, staff, volunteers and members of John Storer House, we would like to take this opportunity to pass on our sincere gratitude for their generous donation. More »

We are sure that you will agree that this kind gesture has touched many people, and is extremely appreciated.

Neil Lambert, Chief Executive of John Storer House accepted the cheque kindly donated by Tony Simons on behalf of the market traders Federation.

Tony Simons, from the Loughborough Market Traders Federation, said "I saw it in the paper and made a few calls to the committee members and we said we will replace that money.

He added, "someone has had the audacity to steal it from a justified cause. John Storer House really do try and help everyone in there. » Less
