What we have been doing in 2022

Our highly trained personnel testing donated equipment before sale

We published our last annual report in 2022. It is a good read, especially if you enjoy facts and figures.

E.g. We collected some 2,218 items from local residents. Out of that over 1,949 items were selected for re-use, benefiting over 500 needy local families.

All this is also environmentally sustainable, as all those items translate into a staggering 72 tonnes of electrical & household items that have been diverted away from landfill or incineration.

Moreover over 6,000 people visited the showroom in that period.

All of this supported by a crack team of volunteers.

We’re committed to transparency, so here is the version of the Annual Report (with minor redactions) as submitted to OSCR:
