We are a locally based Charitable Incorporated Organisation – Charity No. 1184374. Any profits we make are put
directly back into the company for the benefit of our customers and service users
WE ARE YOUR ONLY LOCAL DOMESTIC APPLIANCE RE-USE COMPANY!
What do we do?
We seek to re-use electrical appliances for the benefit of the local community. We do this by receiving donated
goods that people no longer have a need for (e.g. they have bought a new appliance and need to dispose of the
old one), and take them away at no cost to the donor.
These goods are then made available to local people at low prices, with further discounts for those on a range of
benefits. All goods are supplied with a warranty of 6 months.
We work with a variety of organisations to reach those most in need. The following are some of them:
Children and Adults Services, Womens Matters, CADAS, Disability Associations, St. Marys Hospice, Victims
Support, Cumbria Community Homes etc.
How do we work?
Work is carried out by our Domestic Appliance Engineer and dedicated volunteers. We seek to invest in our
volunteers by providing them with training as needed and giving work experience. Volunteers come from all walks
of life and we support them to get back in to work and raise their skill levels. As more donations come in we will
increase our paid employees.
Why do we do it?
Our view has always been that too many of Furness and the South Lakes appliances have been diverted from reuse in our area and instead been sent up the West Coast at no benefit to our local people. We seek to intercept all discarded white goods and therefore save them as refurbished items for the benefit of our community.
We urge you to donate your items to us directly. We offer a free collections service so it will not cost you a penny AND it will benefit people in your local community
