Ballinger Charitable TrustYMCA North Tyneside

YMCA North Tyneside has developed its North Shields building from top to bottom. They approached the Ballinger Charitable Trust to complete the last part of their refurbishment – the community cafe.

YMCA North Tyneside felt strongly about its cafe’s business model and location, and it’s chances of success. One short meeting and an exchange of emails later, and the Ballinger Charitable Trust agreed to loan the money required, repayable from any profits in the first 3 years, to allow the cafe construction to be completed.
