Reuse Littleborough submits charity application

Date published: 11 October 2018

Reuse Littleborough has submitted an application to register as a charity.

Based at the former Royal Oak Hotel, the group first announced plans to apply for charitable status back in June.

Speaking at the time, Michael Bamford, who runs the group, said: “We have made the decision to register as a charity, as this will enable us to be exempt from VAT, receive a massive 80% discount on business rates and open the door for funding.”

Since its inception, Reuse Littleborough has helped change the lives of many people both locally and internationally with your old items that have been kept out of landfill.

It also supports many other local needs, such as the Rochdale Foodbank and the Red Box Project.
