Recycling Lives charitable programme supports vulnerable and marginalised people
Britain's biggest bed maker is supporting vulnerable and marginalised people by donating beds and mattresses to a charitable programme run by local company Recycling Lives.

 

Silentnight is providing the products — which have gone through the same manufacturing and testing processes as those distributed through other channels — to the charity's Preston based services, which work to find families a place to call home after going through a difficult time.


Nick Booth, marketing director at the Barnoldswick company, said: “Being able to support local charitable initiatives like the Recycling Lives programme is incredibly important to us at Silentnight.


"Recycling Lives undertakes such valuable work to support disadvantaged people across Lancashire, and offering donations in the form of beds and mattresses was the least we could do."


The Recycling Lives residential programme provides a safety net for vulnerable and marginalised people, offering accommodation, education, and training to the homeless and long-term unemployed.


Neil Flanagan, head of Recycling Lives residential charity, said: "We are so grateful for this donation from Silentnight. We’ve already given one of the beds to a resident who has moved into his own place and it’s helped to make his house really feel like home.


"We’ll be using the other beds and mattresses to provide a warm welcome to new residents, as we support them to regain their confidence and independence; they are hugely appreciated."
