The best thing about working for a company like Recipro is the great projects and people you get to meet and hear from below is a case study from a great project and hopefully we will be able to help them more in the future.



Upcycled Storage/Display Unit

The community centre in the heart of Egremont opened its door to residents in July 2013 and has been transformed from a former cafe into a place where people can drop in any time for a cuppa and a chat. The facilities include a café area, open to everyone, an I.T corner, art exhibition space with the opportunity for local artists to display and sell their work, a Heritage section with access to photographic libraries and local history reference books, and a small meeting room.


They are currently funded by John Moores University and their own fundraising. They receive no other funding, subsidies or assistance. The centre survives on the good will of the community and the time and generosity of the volunteers working in there. The Heart of Egremont certainly brings out the heart in people.

They were in need of some paint to brighten up their work space as well as some kitchen units to be upcycled into storage space, as you can see from the photos they did a brilliant job for both! Using Recipro to source kitchen units and paint helped to save the organisation over £250*!

Nora Higginson, Community Leader, Heart of Egremont - ?We would like to thank Recipro for offering such a great service. We have always found the staff to be helpful, knowledgeable and have great ideas! Giving assistance where needed, and doing the running around for us!! A pleasure to pop in, even if it is just for advice! We would highly recommend Recipro Wirral for all your paint, DIY materials and now office furniture needs!?
