The Refurb project will accept donated furniture that can be refurbished or reupholstered before selling through the restore shops. Due to the project, furniture can now be stripped down, repainted, recovered and even made fire retardant before being sold through the restore shops. 
You could be part of the team who refurbish furniture and bicycles before selling them on through the restore shops. There are a variety of tasks involved in the stripping down of bikes – carrying out safety checks, replacing parts or if you are handy with sanding down furniture, stripping suites back to their base, recovering suites, painting or sanding wood items – whatever your skill is, we can use it!
