After 2 years of fund raising we have taken delivery of our own new van.
Essex County Council Vice-chairman John Aldridge cut the ribbon with heartfelt speeches made by Brian Darwood, director of Lighthouse Furniture project and local Councillor Janet Whitehouse.
Epping Forest ReUse supports the local community through the sale of furniture and household items, at extremely affordable prices with lower prices offered to those on income based benefits and in some cases items are provided for free.
A terrific charity
Environment Portfolio Holder, Councillor Will Breare-Hall said: “Epping Forest ReUse is a terrific charity and one I’m delighted to support. Not only does this fantastic new vehicle help with the collection of donated furniture and the delivery of purchased items, it’s also an eye-catching mobile advertisement for a service that all our residents can use.”
“Epping Forest ReUse also provides many volunteering opportunities. Whether its staff crewing the van, working in the warehouse or helping with administration, they assist people to gain skills and experience, and help them to grow their self esteem and confidence.”
“If you have unwanted household items to donate or are looking for something for yourself please call 01992 578222 during office hours or contact them via their website at www.eppingreuse.org.uk.”
