NEWS FROM CENTRAL AID

Last financial year Apr 2016 to Mar 2017

Results FY 2016-17.  We received donations of 3,200 items of bulky furniture and appliances -  20% less than last year.  However we helped 198 new homes and 120 returning members with low cost items and grants. We continued to deliver leftover food 'waste' to Saunderton Lodge, the Princes Centre and the Old Tea Warehouse.  We started a relationship with Dunelm High Wycombe and Aylesbury to receive near new, ex-shop floor demo or damaged packaging bedding.  

Wycombe District Council grant

We have been very fortunate to receive a facilities grant to install insulation into our warehouse roof at 260 Desborough Rd.  This means with a contribution from us and Bucks MIND, who occupy the top floor, that all users will benefit from improved heating and energy efficiency. We are very grateful for their support.  

Chicken deliveries

In conjunction with a well respected local chicken restaurant we are now supplying pre-cooked, frozen chicken pieces to hostels and temporary accommodation locations.  Food that was previously not eaten is now helping needy people and families.
