Gerald’s Room is a fully equipped workshop, launched at Easter 2014, which works alongside and complements the Furniture Project.
Many donated furniture items, which may have been turned away because of minor damage or needed repair work, can now be recycled into useful pieces of furniture by giving them a second lease of life and avoiding unnecessary landfill.
Gerald’s Room provides an opportunity for members of the community to involve themselves in some very worthwhile work while, at the same time, learning new skills and making new friends working shoulder to shoulder with other volunteers.
There is also the opportunity to use the facilities for individual projects.
Currently, there are men’s groups operating, both daytime and evening. A women’s group is also operating and focussing on furniture upcycling.
Some items of refurbished and restored furniture are for sale as well as items that have been made from recycled and reclaimed wood.
