Penrith and Eden District Freegle is a reuse group that helps you hand on unwanted items free to others, mainly arranged online but occasionally at local Give and Take events. We're one of 400+ Freegle groups across the UK with over 2.5 million memberships overall.
- Freegle lets you OFFER something you have spare - or put out a WANTED for something you'd like
- For example, your OFFER will be listed on the local group for all local members to see
- Anyone interested will get in touch with you
- You choose who to give it to and arrange to meet up
- You mark the item as TAKEN (or RECEIVED)
- Everything must be free and legal
If you need any help, please phone Chris on 01931713240 - or Elaine on 01697475398 after noon. Or contact us on PenrithEdenFreeglefirstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Please read our welcome message.
Once you are logged in, there's a community events listing which you can add your listing to. And check out the local list of alternative reuse outlets - get in touch if you have any additions.
Penrith and Eden District Freegle is run by local volunteers Chris, Elaine, Judith-Ann and Juliet. Many members help at events, as do volunteers from Penrith Action for Community Transition (PACT) and the lovely Cumbria County Council waste prevention team.
Freegle is a UK not-for-profit organisation, registered as a charity with HMRC (ref. XT32865). Freegle Ltd is an Industrial and Provident Society for Community Benefit Registration no: 32410R. Freegle is free to use, but not free to run - so please consider giving us a donation.
Penrith and Eden District Freegle has received funding for a year from November 2017 through Freegle Ltd from the Cumbria County Council Community Waste Prevention Fund - more details. We also received the same funding in May 2016 - more details. We previously received funding from the Big Lottery Fund (Communities Living Sustainably fund) Sustain Eden project as a partner with Cumbria Action for Sustainability (CAfS). Thanks very much to all funders and those who have given time and donations to help run Freegle.
