The Newbury Community Resource Centre Limited

Helping people to set up a home

We run three furniture re-use projects, passing on good quality furniture, electrical and household goods to those in need in the local community. To do this, we need to cover the cost of running 4 vehicles collecting in unwanted goods and delivering to those who desperately need these goods.

Location

Situation

The need for our services is greater than ever, and in the last year we had 57,340 people through our doors, passed on 49,103 items, and made 7,398 collections and deliveries. We want to ensure we always have a supply of good quality, safe, essential goods - such as beds, tables, sofas, cookers and washing machines, and that we can get these quickly and efficiently to those who need them the most. £800 will keep one of our vehicles on the road for a month.

Solution

To do this, we have 4 vehicles collecting and delivering goods within West Berkshire, and parts of Hampshire and Oxfordshire. Our dedicated van crews share our belief that our customers deserve the best quality furniture and household goods available, delivered the next day when ever possible. When we have emergency situations, our crews work many extra hours to ensure that beds and basic essentials are provided.
