Where Does The Money Go?

The Project gets donations from the items that it passes on for re-use. This money is used to pay for things like:

Fuel for the van,

Van maintenance, repair, and eventual replacement,

Van tax and insurance,

Safety gear,

Volunteers' expenses,

Administration costs,

Staff salaries,

Warehouse maintenance,

Utility bills,


Melton Borough Council kindly pay a grant to cover half the Project's rent.

Rutland County Council makes an annual payment of £5,000 to the
project for collections and deliveries across that county.

There are five part-time members of staff who run the Project along with volunteer assistance, there are currently 25 registered volunteers working with the Project. 

The Project Manager is part funded by the Leicestershire County Council for 30 hours per week.

The Information Technology Consultant/Administrator/Trainer is funded by the Project for 20 hours per week.

The part time Driver/Supervisor is funded from Project generated income for 30 hours per week.

The Van Assistant is funded from Project generated income for 20 hours per week.

The part time Cleaner is funded by the Project for 4 hours per week.

A significant proportion of our costs go to keeping the van serviced and fuelled for deliveries and collections.

Indeed, without the van there would be no Project!
