FRN issued the following press release on 16th January 2008:
FRN team up with Missionfish to empty the cupboards
The Furniture Re-use Network today launched a page dedicated to selling items on eBay which have been collected by re-use charities.
Many re-use charities find that bric-a-brac and other collectable items fill a lonely and abandoned corner of their warehouses. The FRN has partnered up with EBay for Charity organisation MissionFish to create an on-line shopping mall to help make these items available to the general public.
Nick Aldridge, CEO of MissionFish, said, “EBay for Charity is the perfect channel for turning in-kind donations into cash. I hope our partnership with FRN will show eBay for Charity’s potential for recycling and re-use charities.”
A link to the page can be found at www.ebay.co.uk/charity.
