We love giving away furniture to good causes!
As founders of Halo Furnishings award-winning charity arm, Express Yourself (http://www.haloliving.co.uk/the_great_furniture_giveaway), we enjoyed giving away 1% of total turnover to people who normally wouldn’t be able to afford it. With N:rem we plan to give away 5% of turnover to good causes, making us one of the most charitable companies.
We have recently been working with the Ronald McDonald House Charities (www.rmhc.org). They do a superb job of keeping families together whist their children are being treated in hospital. McDonalds Corporation fund the capital costs of building the home whilst the charity has to find the on-going running costs (In Manchester, this means that Mike Fairley, the house manager, has to raise £600,000 per year to keep everything running). When mattresses need replacing, rather than divert funds from normal running costs, we will replace them for free. The patient’s family get a better night’s sleep and the charity can focus on their main job of keeping families together.
We welcome enquiries from other organisations and support where we can. Please get in touch via our contact us page.
Minimising our environmental impact:
We make all our mattresses locally in the UK to minimise our carbon footprint and they are designed with replaceable components to keep better and last longer than most of the competition. Furthermore, our beds can be easily recycled when they are finished.
