Charity Second Time Around receives cash boost

Banbury charity Second Time Around receives cash boost.

The Banbury charity Second Time Around, that enables adults with physical and learning difficulties to gain hands on skills and improve their confidence has received a £2,600 donation from Cherwell District Council.

On Tuesday (16th May 2017) at the council’s AGM, outgoing chairman Cllr Chris Heath presented Second Time Around with the cheque after nominating them as her charity of the year for 2016/17.

On Saturday 8 April, 65 people from across the district came together at the Cherwell Edge Golf Club for the chairman’s dinner; raising money through a variety of activities including a raffle and silent auction.

 

Cllr Heath said:

“Second Time Around is a cause close to my heart. I first came across about the organisation on Facebook, and after learning its ethos was built around recycling old furniture, and building community inclusion, I was instantly hooked as they’re topics I am extremely passionate about.

“The staff and volunteers are lovely down there; they all know me and have since asked if I would like to become a Trustee! They work with a number of people and offer alternative opportunities to the more traditional day centres.”

Second Time Around is a charity that promotes social inclusion and independence for adults with physical and learning difficulties. The organisation gives its volunteers the tools and skills necessary to fully restore and recycle unwanted or donated furniture, which is then sold to customers at their retail warehouse. This approach not only instils confidence in its volunteers but helps break down stereotypes and prejudices, and connects the group to the wider community.

Tucked away on Beaumont Industrial estate, Second Time Around has a huge array of vintage and second hand furniture, decorative home pieces and regularly hosts vintage flea markets on the last Saturday of the month.

David Hederly, treasurer for the organisation says:

“Second Time Around has steadily gone from strength to strength over the course of seven years – from a tiny industrial unit to a large scale workshop and retail warehouse with the recent addition of a café. We hope to use the donation to go towards increasing our visibility within the local area, and encourage people to visit us.”

CDCs new chairman for 2017/18, Cllr Maurice Billington, has chosen four Kidlington-based charities for his year in post: Senile Dementia, The Neighbourhood Scheme and Information Centre, Girl Guides, and Young Adults with Depression.

Second Time Around is a registered charity number 1167212

Opening hours: Monday-Friday 9.30am-5pm and Saturday-Sunday 10am-4pm

Address: 18/19 Beaumont Close, Beaumont Industrial Estate, Banbury, OX16 1TG

They hold vintage and flea markets every last Saturday of the month from April – September.
