Every day in Northern Ireland, Habitat ReStores are making a difference to the lives of local people, and those around the world.
By selling donated new and used building and home improvement materials, it serves thousands of families who need help to improve their homes at low cost and diverts tons of material from landfill.
Take a look at some of the impacts Habitat ReStore had in 2017:
Volunteers like Curtis and partners like Stepping Stones, AMH, Probation Board understand the impact and value the support.
Curtis, pictured right with fellow volunteer Kerry, has been volunteering in ReStore since last year. He came to ReStore through
our partnership with Stepping Stones, and said he wanted to step out of his comfort zone and meet new people.
“I love coming to ReStore, I’ve made lots of new friends and we’re always laughing.” said Curtis.
Donations from companies and individuals are vital to the success of ReStore.
We are thankful for support from many companies including most recent corporate partner Haldane Fisher who have already donated end of line materials to ReStore.
“Donations like this make a huge difference for the local community, giving local people a chance to improve their home at low cost and at the same time diverts reusable material from landfill. so much waste from landfill”, said Niall McConkey.
As part of our commitment to serve more local people we are delighted that we will open ReStore Newry soon.
Jenny Williams said, "We are committed to open ReStores where there is community need, and where we are confident that we can secure community support. We look forward to opening the 3rd ReStore in Europe, in Newry this year and working in partnership with companies, churches and individuals to serve local people"
