Many of us have good quality items that we would like to give away and the Besom provides a way for you to pass them on to people who really need them. Those helped are often re- housed with absolutely nothing in their new home – for example a single parent family who has escaped domestic violence, or homeless person living in a flat for the first time in years.
It is very helpful if you can send us a photo of the item you are offering either to our email (email@example.com) or to our Mobile/WhatsApp (07929 037101).
Here is an overview of items that we are able to give to local people in need. We hope that it will help you to decide what
you can give. Thank you for wanting to give your items through your local Besom.
