Every year Storeroom2010 helps the local island community to save thousands of kgs of furniture and household items from landfill by the promotion of furniture re-use. An average of 150,000kg per year re-used in the last nine years! Storeroom often accepts items that other charities have refused, as they are not looking for perfection or maximum profit, but simply to provide a reasonably priced option for those who need serviceable furniture.
In addition to their recycling initiatives, Storeroom2010 also provides volunteer opportunities, community placements and work experience to those seeking a route to employment; enabling the building of confidence and providing support with seeking paid employment.
Storeroom’s Community Project, The Cowes Men’s Shed offers free membership to everyone aged 18+ and has a well equipped carpentry workshop, hobby room and horticulture areas. The Shed is open Monday to Friday, 10am-3pm. Please call the Project Leader Adam on 01983 209734 for further information or email him at email@example.com
