On Social Saturday, this 15th October, Jericho took the opportunity to promote its eight social enterprises — in print, catering, construction, landscape, cleaning, recycling, and first aid training — its co-working space, The Loft Workspace, and its apprenticeship schemes.
The ReUsers Centre in Sutton hosted a half-price promotion on all outdoor and leisure equipment, with excellent sales of tables and chairs. “We were delighted by the turnout at our ReUsers store,” says Helen Worrall, the group’s social enterprise manager. “Shoppers loved the free cupcakes and our rescued and restored bargains. It was a great opportunity to show people social enterprise in action and make more excellent contacts in the local community.”
And for the fourth year in a row Jericho is also pleased to announce that its Christmas Emporium — on the second floor of ReUsers — is now open. This special Christmas pop-up store is offering a huge range of recycled Christmas decorations, ornaments, gifts and trees, as well as handmade festive gifts from the Jericho Wood Shack.
ReUsers offers great items that have bags of life left in them but were destined for landfill. “Secondhand can be first choice” is its slogan, and in Sutton it’s an idea that has really taken off.
