Remade In Derry
If you have any unwanted furniture or electrical items drop them at the Furniture Donation Point at New 2 You in Pennyburn Recycling Centre, Derry. They’ll be upcycled and refurbished by unemployed and disabled people training in trade skills and are then sold at affordable prices in the New 2 You shop on site. So you’re helping people re-skill while helping our environment – it’s a win win!
New2You have teamed up with Derryware Donations and are asking people to donate any unused laptops, that are still in good condition, to be revamped into Chromebooks for local children learning from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Please place your device in a sealed plastic bag with the charger and leave in the box next to the Furniture Donation Point at New2You in Pennyburn Recycling Centre, Derry.
Devices will be PAT tested, revamped then passed on to a child/family in need.
We educate people who are unemployed and people with disabilities in repair and life skills equipping people for the workplace. We offer participants a personal development plan supporting them and breaking down barriers to employment. Our courses are OCN accredited and include:
- Basic Construction Skills – carpentry and painting
- Exploring a Career in Construction – Electrical skills
- Teamwork skills
- Healthy Living
- Retail skills
Zero Waste Economy
Our vision is to create a zero waste economy, an alternative to a disposable society by making repair education accessible, to build a stronger, waste-free community and support vulnerable people within our city and district.
