Aberdeen Forward, a local environmental charity, along with Aberdeenshire Council are to organise a “Give and Take” Day at the Rescue Hall, Peterhead on Saturday, 18th September, 2010.

The idea for the event is people can take along, items such as furniture, kitchenware, books, dvds & cds, toys, and plants/gardenware between 8.30am and 12.00 noon. From 10.00 until 3.00pm the Rescue Hall will be open to the public who can come along and take items they want for FREE.

Clothes, paint, videos and all electrical goods will NOT be accepted.

Teas, coffees and home bakes will be available on the day.

It is hoped that among those who may benefit are families on low incomes, or those setting up home for the first time. It is also hoped that by holding this event, items that might have gone to landfill will be found a new home.

If you wish to arrange large items to be collected to take to the event, you can contact Aberdeen Forward on 01224 560360 or email for more details. There will also be a delivery service on the day for people wanting to take large items away.
