Refurb is a local charity which was set up in 2002 with the goal to reduce the amount of furniture, electrical & other household items going to landfill.

Helping individuals and families within the Blackpool, Wyre & Fylde areas access these items and to improve employment & training opportunities of local people by the provision of training volunteering options.

Refurb offer professional First Aid training to individuals and companies throughout the Fylde Coast and run a very successful Community RePaint scheme. This project has recycled thousands of litres of paint to individuals, charities & community projects throughout Blackpool, Wyre & Fylde.
Refurb is backed by a loyal team of volunteers who generously give their spare time to help local people. Volunteers help out in such areas as administration, van driving, customer service, furniture repair and electrical testing.

If you have a few hours to spare a week and would like to volunteer them why not contact them and find out what current volunteer opportunities they have. Telephone (01253) 873371
