Storeroom2010

REF NR: 3484


 

An island charity dedicated to helping island people

Storeroom2010 is a proactive charitable organisation priding itself on its strong sense of community spirit.  Open Tuesday to Saturday, 10am-4pm with FREE parking right outside or if you use public transport, Storeroom is just a couple of minutes walk along Saunders Drive from the Cowes Park and Ride Bus Stop.

 
Storeroom collects items of reusable furniture (compliant with fire safety in the case of soft furnishings) then offers it at low cost to the island community who are cannot afford to furnish their own homes with new items.

Furniture donated by island residents may otherwise have been taken to the landfill site, so this also minimises the impact on our environment.  Storeroom offers island residents this recycling opportunity to really help their community and the environment. 

 

Our warehouse and shop are both open to the general public and to clients referred by various support agencies.  The referred clients are offered a further discount on furniture.  There is a low cost delivery service available too.

If you are on low income, a keen up-cycler, or just cannot resist a bargain, do visit Storeroom.  You’ll be amazed at how much stock we have on display spread over our two floors and we may have just what you need!  All purchases help keep this valuable island project running and contribute to Storeroom’s community project, Cowes Men’s Shed.

The staff and volunteers at Storeroom are a friendly group and if you have time to spare and would like to help, please phone Kerri on 01983 298679 to discuss volunteer opportunities.

 



In December 2016 Storeroom entered the IW Chamber of Commerce Business Awards for excellence and received the Business in the Community Award.  In June 2017 Storeroom received The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, which is the MBE for Voluntary Groups.

 

All monies raised from sales are used to support the Storeroom project and vulnerable people in our island community.  No monies leave the Isle of Wight.


 

Mens Shed

 

The Cowes Men’s Shed

The Cowes Mens Shed is a member of the UKMSA (UK Men’s Sheds Association) and our shed has the longest opening hours of any ‘Sheds’ on the Isle of Wight; Monday to Friday, 10am-3pm.  We give free membership to everyone aged 18+, so that no one in our community is excluded; and despite the name, ladies are most welcome.  

 

Men's Shed

 

Men’s Sheds (or Sheds) are similar to garden sheds – a place to pursue practical interests at leisure, to practice skills and enjoy making and mending. The difference is that garden sheds and their activities are often solitary in nature while Men’s Sheds are the opposite. They’re about social connections and friendship building, sharing skills and knowledge, and of course a lot of laughter.  Sheds are whatever the members (or Shedders as they are called) want them to be.  Whatever the activity, the essence of a Shed is the connections and relationships between its members.
