Event Date: 19.03.2015

We have recently moved to Unit 7 Trevecca Industrial Eastate, Culverland Road,  Liskeard PL14 6RE. This is a Recycling and Restoring centre where people can help themselves to household items, furniture, clothing, toys and books. Many local residents are bringing in their unwanted items. We do accept donations from those who ARE ABLE to do so. The reason for starting this project is the result of a survey carried out during our Christmas Giveway. Many people are being affected by the recession and are being touched by the kindness expressed at R&R.

Helping Others
A centre like this will encourage Community Spirit. Many of the people who participated in our recent survey offered to support the work volunteering their spare time and services. This will create job opportunities for those who have limited hours available because they have young children or who have not been able to find employment at this time. It will also provide a venue where people struggling to cope will meet others in similar circumstances and would not feel so isolated.
Specific financial, social and emotional needs can be recognised and further support and help will be extended. The United Kingdom experienced a financial boom in the 1980's and 1990's where credit cards and loans were very generously extended, and people lived in hire purchased and “buy now and pay later” schemes. A re-education on budget and debt counselling is imperative to cope in the current economic crisis.
The recycling aspect means less landfills and instead of spending money unnecessarily, to bring usable items gifts/furniture/toys in for others and possibly find something that they need. This project gives dignity to people in that they can help the environment as well as take care of some fundamental needs. Where the need is greater the support for dealing with debt and introducing techniques to live within a smaller budget will be offered.
