Thanks to funding that we manage on behalf of Three Rivers District Council, iMatter Health and Wellbeing CIC have been able to restore a piece of furniture on behalf of a local resident so that it could continue to be used. Earlier this year, Imatter Health and Wellbeing CIC received £1,500 from the Three Rivers Sustainability Fund which aims to help promote sustainability and reduce their impact on the environment.
This funding allowed them to set up and run their Neighbourly Love Art Recycling Workshop which aims to upcycle pieces of furniture so that they can either be reused or sold, helping to reduce the number of items thrown away in the area. One such donation was a chair, picture below, piece was given to us by a family who had lost their elderly mother, who loved sitting in the chair to drink tea. The family were clearing her home and wanted her memory to live on through this chair.
As a result, the funding allowed iMatter to spent time working on this furniture as now been delivered to her home and she said that she is very thankful for the support of iMatter in upcycling this chair
which has allowed her to continue to enjoy tea, in the chair just as her mother did.

and Three Rivers Trust (W3RT) on behalf of Three Rivers District Council. You can find more information about W3RT here and about the Sustainability Fund here.
