Refurnish is a local charity which collects unwanted reusable furniture, appliances and other household goods from the public, free of charge. Electrical items are professionally tested and repaired and then sold with a warranty and furniture only undergoes minor repairs. The shop is open to all however a 20% discount is given to anyone on benefits/low income. The mission of Refurnish is to reduce household goods going to waste, help alleviate poverty by providing low cost goods to people on low income and create employment, work experience, training and volunteering oppor-tunities for a wide range of people often with a mixture of support needs. Refurnish Chief Executive David Banks said ‘We often help older people who have decided to downsize and move to smaller accommodation. Like most people they don’t want the things they have cherished to be thrown away when somebody else could make use of them and certainly don’t want to pay to do so. At other times when a relative dies, a member of the family will have the distressing task of disposing of their furniture, appliances and personal affects, we help by clearing out the things they don’t want, making sure they are either used by someone else or recycled.’ For further information, to arrange a collection ring 01822 618822, email email@example.com visit our shop behind the Focus Do-It-All building.
