Counting Hope is a community group based in Grimsby, North East Lincolnshire

We are a group of people born and bred in the region, passionate about making a real difference! Especially when it comes to Sal Island, Cabo verde.

Founded by Andy Green, Rick Green, Julie Green and Joanna Green naturally they all sit on the Counting Hope committee.

Counting Hope is not simply another charitable organisation – we want to do things differently and we want to keep it personal so here is a bit about all of our committee members:
