Nigel Evans MP popped into our ReUse Together centre to see at first-hand what it does as a thank you for all the help staff provided during the Christmas floods.
The Ribble Valley MP popped into the showroom on Glenfield Park to see how the centre is changing lives and providing a fantastic community service in the process.
During the Christmas floods that devastated Whalley, ReUse Together staff were on hand to lend support and guidance to people whom lost everything.
And Mr Evans was so impressed by what he saw and heard about the centre, he took the opportunity to see first-hand.
ReUse Together is open to everyone and anyone who needs something to help make their house a home and we have new and pre-owned items such as furniture, small electrical items, beds, new mattresses, carpet tiles, some white goods, soft furnishings and the odd collectable.
They also stock carpet tiles (recycled and in a variety of grades, colours, patterns etc) and we have a number carpet tiles that are no longer for suitable for domestic use and are available free of charge.
He said: “It was a fantastic opportunity for me to see the marvellous work ReUse Together are doing. They were instrumental in the aftermath of the Whalley floods in getting people back on their feet so it was of great interest to see what the wider business is about.
“I was extremely happy to see that they are working with the job centre to provide valuable work experience to those looking for jobs, helping people who are applying on the job market, and teaching trades and skills to young people.”
