Leaving Liverpool Tidy project launches community ‘free’ shop for locals (22 Sept 2016)

A reuse initiative organised by the Liverpool Guild of Students that’s collected more than four tonnes of unwanted kitchen items and other items are inviting local residents and communities to their Free Shop Giveaway Event on the 26th September at the St Brides Church, Percy St, Liverpool L8 7LT between 11.00 am and 3.00 pm.

All items at the event have been donated by Liverpool University students and local residents across various halls of residence and properties – and were collected by the Guild’s ‘Leaving Liverpool Tidy’ project. The project, funded through Liverpool City Council and the Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority and Veolia Community Fund is one of ten projects being supported this year with the aim of preventing waste and encouraging re-use.

The Community Free Shop is at St Brides Church, Percy St, Liverpool L8 7LT and will be open on 26th September from 11.00 am to 3.00 pm.

Please note there are no delivery facilities available at the Shop and residents will have to make their own arrangement for collection.
