About NHH

Northern Helping Hands began solely as a Pay It Forward style gifting page on Facebook. It was taken over by our team in February 2017 with 500 members and has been transformed into a strong community support group with over 3400 members. We are passionate about supporting the community and preventing goods reaching landfill.
