Coventry Refurbishment Centre
Centre Manager: Ian Schoolar
Phone: 07719 634131
Address: 8 Lifford Way, Binley, Coventry, CV3 2RN
Opening times: Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 9.30 - 3.30pm
We're a busy Refurbishment Centre operating out of two adjacent units and with our own van. We collect from across the Midlands, the North of England and Wales. We're never short of tools to sort and refurbish! We're a great team of volunteers who work well together and support each other. We have a laugh while we're working.
We're open three days a week but there are often volunteers around other days and if we had enough volunteers we would like to open more days.
We specialise in refurbishing sewing machines, assembling carpentry kits and sorting haberdashery, but we can put our hands to most things. We have a break area and provide tea, coffee, biscuits and sometime people bring in cakes. We like people who bring in cakes! Anyone can use any mug or glass and you can keep drinks cold in the fridge. Everyone shares in washing up. We've plenty of parking outside the units.
If you want to find out what we do and what you could do to help, please give us a ring or just pop in. It would be great to see you.

Interested in joining us? Then here's what happens next:
The next step can be to ring or email us and arrange to pop in for an informal chat and tour. Alternatively you could fill in the online application form or download the paper copy. It's very short! After that we will take up references and if they are OK we'll arrange for you to come for an induction and discuss what you would like to do it. Then with a training session booked, you're all set to go!
