AstraZeneca volunteer at The Upcycling Station

Our corporate volunteering days continue to be a huge success! A team from pharmaceutical company, AstraZeneca came along to the Upcycling Station last week volunteering their time to transform our pre-loved furniture for families in need in Stockport.

Eight employees donned painting overalls and were shown the basics of upcycling pre-loved furniture using wax and chalk paint. From chairs and tables to bedside cabinets, the team worked really hard to complete their items and all with an expert finish; they look amazing!

Corporate volunteering days are just one of the Furniture Station’s recent initiatives to support individuals and families facing hardship. Items up-cycled on team-building days make a welcome addition to our furniture selection available to clients when they visit our warehouse – offering something modern and stylish alongside more traditional wood pieces.

The painting workshops are a great way for businesses to get involved with a local charity through any company volunteering days entitlement.
