The Furniture Scheme March 2008
On 6 March 2008 the club presented The Furniture Scheme charity, with a bench mortice and a drill press and stand.
The Furniture Scheme runs a small training scheme in Twickenham for young people and long-term unemplyed people to learn something about carpentry, maintenance and refurbishment. The charity provides cheap donated furniture to people in need and for those who are being housed for the first time.
The scheme organiser Joanna Gregory introduced us to volunteer supervisor Henry Brockman and three of the young trainees, Harry, Ed and Matt.
