Recently, we completed an office relocation for 400 members of staff in Glasgow. the client wanted to re-use as much of their OLD furniture as possible. Some of the furniture was given to one of our chosen charities; Citizens Advice Scotland, based in Aberdeenshire. RHT Group re-used 95.6% of the old furniture, with the rest being fully recycled.
Citizens Advice Scotland has 60 member bureaux and their consumer helpline together form Scotland’s largest independent advice network. CAB help more than 300,000 people solve their problems each year in communities everywhere from city centres to the Highlands and Islands. They look at the problems people bring to them for advice services and campaign for change where it is needed most. The Bureau works for a fairer Scotland where people are empowered, and their rights respected.
The furniture RHT Group were able to donate (due to the ethical disposal scheme) has enabled Bureaux in Turriff and Macduff to replace old and damaged furniture to create a better working environment.
Turriff Bureau Manager has been ecstatic with the furniture donation, which has been welcomed as a boost for the two Bureaux. Citizens Advice Scotland is a registered charity and does not receive funding for replacing old or damaged furniture.
