Show your love for The Customs House as we celebrate our 25th Anniversary.
Our Heart of the House fundraising campaign was launched to celebrate the 25th anniversary of The Customs House last year and 130 dedications have made since November 2018, raising more than £20,000 for The Customs House Trust Ltd.
Our fantastic friends and supporters certainly got behind the campaign, using used the text on the hearts to share their memories of The Customs House and what it means to them. Other notable sponsors include Little Mix star Jade Thirlwall, Margaret Fay, who chairs the Board of Trustees at The Customs House, former Foreign Secretary and South Shields MP David Miliband, poet and playwright Tom Kelly and musician John Miles.
Silver hearts have also been dedicated in memory of actor and director Jackie Fielding and Manchester Arena bombing victims Chloe Rutherford and Liam Curry. A number of businesses have also sponsored hearts, including Colmans, Hays Travel and Tolent, as well as organisations like Arts Council England, South Tyneside Council, Daft as a Brush, South Shields FC and The Catherine Cookson Charitable Foundation. The hearts are currently on display in the foyer of the building, in Mill Dam, South Shields, but will be moved to a permanent location within The Customs House when the campaign draws to a close.
The hearts are available below with prices starting at just £25.
We also have window decal stickers available for a donation of only £5.
