Chester Used Furniture Enterprise
Chester Used Furniture Enterprise (CUFE) launched to fill the gap left when Blacon Furniture Project (BFP) had to cease trading. BFP had been part of Blacon Community Trust, which sadly went into voluntary liquidation. Recognising that there remained a need for a furniture reuse project’ CUFE started so that it could
- Provide good quality, low cost furniture and electrical appliances to low income families.
- Reduce the amount of re-usable furniture, appliances, household items and bicycles needlessly being sent to landfill.
- Actively encourage and promote volunteering, offer training opportunities, “real world” work experience and confidence building opportunities.
- Reinvest any surplus generated back into the local Blacon projects that work to alleviate poverty
CUFE is a social enterprise, a registered company (Company Number 9988607) and currently applying for charitable status
