Total Reuse have just met with Liverpool based 'The Whitechapel Centre' to discuss the fittings for their flagship charity shop opening in early September.
The Whitechapel Centre is the leading homeless and housing charity for the Liverpool region. They work with people who are sleeping rough, living in hostels or struggling to manage their accommodation. Committed to helping people find and maintain a home and learn the life skills essential for independent living since 1975, The Whitechapel Centre has been providing support services to some of society's most vulnerable and socially excluded people.
One of the team spotted our Mannequin light on Facebook and Shop Manager Angie Brown got in touch. Following the meeting today when Angie confirmed the style they were looking for she said: "I am very excited about working with Total Reuse, I think that the Whitechapel Centre and The Tool Shed are a perfect match and we defiantly could move to other things apart from the shop fittings".
Team Total felt exactly the same. They explained: "There are definitely a number of opportunities for working together and manufacturing the shop fittings from reclaimed materials is a great start. The industrial look is very popular at the moment and we have a fair amount of reclaimed scaffold equipment to start the project. Over the next few days we will see what we have and what we need and produce a prototype for Angie to look at".
