Charity Project - Team Oasis Saves over £1200 by Sourcing Materials through ReciproCity Wirral

posted 04.09.2014


Team Oasis came to Recipro with a mission statement to update and refurbish an old derelict building and transform it into a child friendly space where Team Oasis can deliver activities for children of all abilities, backgrounds and circumstances.


They were able to source materials to cover up and repair damage to the roof/ceiling as well as the walls and floors giving the whole building a new lease of life. After the building work was complete they also purchased hundreds of litres of paint ? glosses, matt paint, masonry and undercoat all for a low cost which enabled the project to continue to be on schedule but more importantly on budget.

Paul Nilson, Team Oasis Coordinator, said, ?Using the Recipro service to source low cost building materials and paint has enabled us to not only to get the project finished on cost but also on time. On behalf of the Team Oasis Charity I would like to thank Recipro for providing a great service and thank all the contractors and suppliers who support the service by donating their surplus and reusable materials. We were surprised by the high quality of the materials, especially the paint which is just £1 per litre. We will be using the service again and again in the future and would certainly recommend it to anyone?


By using Recipro, Team Oasis saved over £1200* compared with purchasing these products ?new?. They helped to reuse over 1.5 tonnes of material, which saved 3.3 tonnes of carbon.
