It was following a GMCC Stockport networking meeting in February that our Fundraiser met with Chris Shaw and Ron Kirwin from Activa Advertising & Design. Joanne was fortunate enough to have 2 minutes to speak at the event and had stressed the need of increased awareness for the charity in order to meet the demand for re-used furniture.
Chris & Ron immediately showed an interest in the work of The Furniture Station and offered to assist us .
“We love helping companies and organisations solve the challenges they have by providing new ideas and creative thinking to a situation. When we saw what great work the guys at The Furniture Station did and how it benefited everyone in the community we were more than happy to lend our support ”
After just one meeting Chris had helped us identify areas that could improve our awareness and a plan began to take shape which quickly developed.
The local, Stockport based business has helped The Furniture Station create a fresh new look – with a contemporary new logo, digital advertisements & a collection business card in place for the group. The support we have received from Activa Advertising & Design has been incredible.
The Furniture Station continues to assist 1,000 homes in Stockport each year with re-used furniture & white goods. We aim to relieve poverty, prevent homelessness and help people to establish a more stable, independent and healthy lifestyle. We need more donated furniture & white goods to help local people.
Our number is 0161 456 0717. Please get in touch if you would like to re-use your furniture or electrical items for the people we support.
If you require the support of our services please also call us for more information or visit www.furniturestation.com/supportingpeople.
