An island charity dedicated to helping island people
Registered Charity 1142010 | Registered Company 7488966 | Patron: Fred Dinenage MBE
Storeroom2010 is a small independent furniture re-use charity, operating without the benefits of statutory funding. Situated on the Isle of Wight, Storeroom is in an area which suffers disproportionally high unemployment and child poverty compared to many other areas in the UK. Storeroom2010 enables impoverished and disadvantaged families to be able to affordably furnish their homes, thereby improving their quality of life.
When referred by statutory and voluntary agencies, customers who are in need benefit from a discount on many of the already very reasonably priced items at Storeroom. All the furniture you see at Storeroom has been donated by Island residents, providing affordable furnishing to those who cannot afford to purchase new. Furniture re-use also minimises impact on the environment as a smaller amount of bulky items are disposed of at our landfill site. Storeroom2010 enables Island residents to recycle, help their community and their local environment too.
Storeroom’s Community Project Cowes Men’s Shed is open to everyone aged 18 and over and not just men! We have a large carpentry/joinery workshop, a (relatively) sawdust-free break and activity room and a well-equipped kitchen area with an oven, hobs, a microwave, fridge and (most importantly) a kettle. We also have a spacious garden that contains two polytunnels, raised beds, benches, birds and the occasional red squirrel!
We collect and sell most household items including the following:
- Electrical Goods
- Garden Furniture
- White Goods
- Bric a Brac
