Right2Work throws open it's doors

Profile: Right2Work, 28th Oct, 2015

In October, the team at Right2Work hosted an open day at the Furniture Warehouse. Lucky visitors, including Tim Farron: Lib Dem leader and MP for Westmorland and Lonsdale, were given a sneak peek behind the scenes.

The Furniture Warehouse welcomed visitors from Kendal and beyond. The reception was transformed with decorations, with tea and cakes a plenty! The open day was a rare chance to see the hard work that goes on to recycle donated items which cannot be resold. The team have recently welcomed a new upholstery tutor who will help to give old and damaged items of furniture a new lease of life.

A highlight of the day was the arrival of MP Tim Farron and Cllr Stephen Coleman (pictured, who met our expert recycling team whilst they were hard at work. We were also very pleased to show around groups of students from local Sandgate school, who came to learn more about the placement opportunities at Right2Work.
