Desk And Swivel Chair Donations

“We wanted to write to thank you for the kind and generous donation of amazing furniture we received from Collecteco. This means a lot to us and our school community; our Steyning Family.

The donated furniture will be used in our relocated Sixth Form. We will be able to create an office-like environment in which our sixth formers can flourish. This type of furniture is something that would not come within our budget.

As a school we constantly strive to deliver an outstanding provision to the young people in our care with very limited resources and funding.

The donations will provide a very welcome boost to the morale of our Steyning family as well as providing much needed relief to our stretched budget.”

Steyning Grammar School, Steyning

“Massive thank you to Collecteco for the generous donations of shelving for our logistics hubs to ensure safe storage of items for our Covid response.”

- Craig Rankin

St John Ambulance, London

“I just want to pass on my thanks for all your help with these donations. They will have saved us thousands of pounds which has had a huge impact. From a rough estimate, this means that we can install PCs into classrooms enabling 4,500 students to learn vital IT skills.

Beyond this, we estimate that the environmental impact from your donations has offset 70 tonnes of CO2 emissions, which is the equivalent of planting 175 trees!”

- James Turing

The Turing Trust, Edinburgh

“The Collecteco Team have gone above and beyond for the Great Western Air Ambulance Charity. We required some furniture for our premises in South Bristol, which Steve provided great quality, good communication and an excellent delivery cost.

Collecteco have once again risen to the challenge by offering Collecteco’s support during this pivotal time for the air ambulance covering Bristol and the surrounding areas.”

- Joe Hughes

Great Western Air Ambulance Charity, Bristol

“Very big thank you on behalf of Stafford and Rugeley Sea Cadets for the donation of carpet tiles. We initially had hoped to re-carpet our reception area and corridor, but managed to do our whole building, making it look so much better!

Very much appreciated!”

- Charlotte Folland

Stafford and Rugeley Sea Cadets, Stafford

“It is great to see that the furniture donated is starting to have a second life! During the school lockdown, it became apparent that to be able to house our staff safely, we needed to rethink our staff room. We repurposed our school kitchen area and I think we have made a lovely staff area, which will be a great cooking area and meeting space for the professional services we have in school, meeting staff and working with our lovely children.

Thank you for the donation and the delivery service! I would never have been able to get it into our place without you guys nor would we have afforded it.”

- Jackie Orr

Christ Church C of E VC Infants School, Bristol

“With your help, we’ve managed to kit out our whole office and, with a good scrub and a lick of paint, the place looks brand new!

Without your support, we would have had to spend a significant amount of money kitting the office out, and probably still wouldn’t have been able to afford items of the quality you provid.

Now, we’re able to use the money saved to directly fund our work providing vulnerable children with confidence building breaks and adventures.

We’re so grateful for your support!”

- Rachel Nichols

Free to be Kids, London

“Collecteco is such an excellent idea.

The servers we received were in excellent condition and one was even still in warranty. We’ve now got enough to run experiments on, host a Minecraft server for teaching kids about coding, control our access systems and run CAD workshops.

Thank you very much Collecteco!”

- Tim Neobard

East Essex Hackspace CIC, Hockley

“Wow! What an exciting, challenging and exhausting 72 hours I had securing fantastic office furniture donations for The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust.

We have saved an excess of 500 items going to landfill and most likely saved over £60,000 in purchasing items.

Thank you to Collecteco and the insurance company that kindly donated these much needed items. They have helped our NHS staff make a difference.”

- Alexander Ford

The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust, Shrewsbury

“A big thank you for the fantastic furniture that you delivered to us. We are all so grateful and really appreciate a company that is able to help our schools where money is very limited!

I personally am so happy that the items will not be thrown away – we definitely need to reduce what gets thrown out and try and reuse where possible.

Excellent quality furniture, excellent service and some very happy teachers! Diolch yn fawr!”

- Rhian Booth

Ysgol Bro Edern, Cardiff

“With more demand than ever being placed on our budget, I do not know what we would have done without the generous donations we have received.

Thank you from all the staff at Avonmouth School!”

- Jackie Hall

Avonmouth C of E Primary School, Bristol

“Thank you for the materials and furniture that you have donated. We are volunteer-led and without these donations, we would have not been able to carry out the projects necessary to offer this valuable asset to the local community.”

- Mike Taylor

Faith Church, Wales

“The staff and residents of Taylor House are overwhelmed by the generosity of Collecteco and want to thank you for the donations and hard work to make it happen.

Outside agencies that we work with have also commented on how great the office looks.

Thank you, we could not have done this without you!”

- Stacey Wilkins

Elim Housing, South Gloucestershire

“As a charity run preschool, we are so grateful for the donation of furniture. As we endeavour to provide the highest quality learning experiences for the children with our care, the donations from Collecteco have enabled us to enhance our environment even further.

Thank you for all of your support, Collecteco!”
