Welcome to Honest John’s Website


Honest John’s Fundraising Stall was first launched in 2007, initially set up to raise money for any community organisations or clubs based in Newton Aycliffe who were struggling and needed help. John takes no payment from the stall and all money taken is given back to the local community.

Honest John has helped many organisations in Newton Aycliffe averaging approximately £20,000 per annum, details of organisations who have been helped can be found on this website by clicking a link on the right. Many of the groups John helps receive an annual donation and not just a one off payment.

November 2019 sees the start of the thirteenth year John has been helping local organisations – in that time he has raised over £211,000.00.

John moved from the weekly market to a shop in Humankind (DISC) next to the Blue Bridge up until the end of August 2018. John now has a larger self contained unit at 29 Durham Way South, Aycliffe Business Park, Newton Aycliffe.

John is open Monday to Saturday from 10.00am to 4.00pm.
