Second-hand furniture -a trip to Waste Not Want Not

Today I paid a visit to a great organisation in Chippenham (Wilts) called Waste Not Want Not. The charity collects unwanted household furniture and appliances and then sells for a low price to customers on low incomes. They have a small team of (mostly) volunteers and are funded by grants, donations and sales.ย  However sales are declining as their clients are struggling to buy food, let alone furniture. It’s such a brilliant organisation and I hope it can continue.

I went to see the staff and volunteers as I am planning to run a Repair Cafe at the end of the month, inspired by mymakedoandmendyear blog and Wiltshire Wildlife Trust. I needed an electrician and, fingers crossed, one of the volunteers from Waste Not Want Not is able to help. More details to follow…
