THE PRE-LOVED CLOTHING SPECIALISTS
Expensive Mistakes has made a conscience decision to invest in the local community and charities. So when you tell us to donate your unwanted items to charity we know exactly where they go….. The South Shropshire Furniture Scheme.
The organisation, established in 1994, operates with the help of over 100 volunteers and trainees as well as a number of paid staff. Working closely with James Cooper, General Manager, we send all donated items to Rockspring Community Centre for sorting into two categories: (i) items that can be used for job interviews and work wear and (ii) anything else that can be sold to help the South Shropshire Furniture Scheme’s finances.
As you know there is not a lot of space for storage in the shop (one wardrobe fit to bursting) so this is a simple local solution to dispose of unwanted items and to give a sometimes vulnerable part of our community a helping hand, perhaps a way into employment or to hone their customer service and computer skills. Check out their website on www.furniturescheme.co.uk where you can learn all about the scheme and ways to volunteer.
