A project aimed at developing skills and recycling household goods is being unveiled at Knowsley Council’s Adult Disability Day Service in Stockbridge Village.
An event to showcase the upcycling initiative is being held at Stockbridge Activity Base, Spruce Grove, Stockbridge Village on Monday 15 October, between 11am and 1pm, when the local community and invited guests will have the chance to meet those involved in the project – and bag an upcycled bargain.
There will also be an opportunity to tour the workshop and meet the day centre service users who are developing valuable upcycling skills refurbishing unwanted furniture and other household goods. Refreshments are available and floral displays, crafts and winter baskets will also be on sale.
Cllr Sean Donnelly, Knowsley Council’s Cabinet Member for Health and Social Care said:
“This is a great example of the valuable contribution individuals with a disability make to the lives our local community, and how we support them to do this. Those involved in the scheme are developing valuable skills and qualifications helping them be more independent. This project also helps the environment by breathing new life into unwanted or discarded items, as well as enabling people to pick up some great bargains.”
