Another example of the community ‘Pound Pending’ scheme in practise


A prime example of exactly why the community ‘Pound Pending’ scheme exists is ‘Eva.’

Many of you will recognize her from selling copies of ‘The Big Issue’ outside Marks & Spencer in Blackburn town centre.

As a result of the generosity of those who have donated to the scheme, we were able to provide her with a pram, some gloves and clothing items worth up to £40 in the Rummage Rescuers community shop.

Rummage Rescuers Shop Manager, Bex Wood said: “Eva was absolutely frozen when she came into the shop, a regular customer actually went and purchased her a pair of boots as we unfortunately didn’t have any warmer shoes to provide her with.”

Please continue to donate to the ‘Pound Pending’ scheme so that we can continue to help those who need our support, when they need it.  £1 may not sound much, but it can make all the difference.  You can donate either £1 or above by visiting our website: www.rummagerescuers.org.uk/pound-pending.

We need your help for the Great Rummage Rescuers Refit!

Rummage Rescuers are excited to announce that we will be performing a major revamp and redesign of the interior of our flagship community store at 34 New Wellington Street, Blackburn.

As part of this revamp, we will be removing false walls, the shop counter, re-decorating and adding new flooring.  We really need the support of the local community to achieve this, therefore if you know of any local businesses who would be able to assist us with this project or supply items for the revamp, please contact us or drop into our shop at 34 New Wellington Street, Blackburn for a chat or email refit@rummagerescuers.org.uk.

A big thank you in advance from the entire Rummage Rescuers team for any assistance the community and local businesses can offer!
