The Big Bright Future Trust is a UK registered charity (1099665) and acts as our redistribution arm. Through BBFT we are working with other respected and accredited NGOs, schools and charities domestically and around the world, making a real difference to the lives of people in need.
Over the past 14 years we have worked in 18 countries providing much needed equipment to the classroom environment, enabling school children to both learn and feel proud about their surroundings. Our projects have also involved health centres, orphanages and wildlife centres allowing these organisations to flourish and deliver their invaluable work.
Through the Waste to Wonder process, The Big Bright Future Trust select and donate redundant corporate equipment such as IT and furniture to help people unlock their full potential.
At last companies have a real opportunity to demonstrate their core environmental and social values whilst improving lives in our global community.
Below are just a few examples of the charities and schools we have been able to support locally through the Big Bright Future Initiatives.
“On behalf of the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust, I would like to say a very big thank you for the kind donation of three office storage tambours from your stock of repurposed furniture and your kind offer to donate further items should we have a need. I understand the tambours were from your client the Nationwide Building Society so our thanks to them too. Each tambour has now been put to good use in the Education, Grounds and Aviculture departments respectively here at Slimbridge.” – Chris James, Facilities Manager, WWT Slimbridge Wetland Centre
“I would like to take this opportunity to say “Thank you” for all your assistance in helping us furnish our new Children’s Centre. We found the staff at Big Bright Future were really helpful and welcoming. The quality of the furniture was excellent and we were able to access some great furniture for our new Children’s Centre for a small donation. This financial saving allowed us to spend more money on play items for the children. In fact we have been so pleased with the quality of your service that we have recommended the initiative to other Children Center’s in the area. Once again “Thank you” and best wishes for the future.” – Jan Kershaw, Coordinator, Saplings Children’s Centre
“Having received the shredder we are now confident in being able to maintain our necessary high standards of confidentiality. This vital piece of equipment affords us the opportunity of complete and utter certainty when discarding private written material.” – Sue Braeger, Chairperson / Treasurer, Havering Family Diabetes Group
“A big Thank you to Big Bright Future for the furniture we received. We have recently relocated to new premises and with that came extra expenses. As a charity our funds are limited, so being able to receive good quality furniture from the BBF initiative enabled us to use the money saved in other places.” – Sam Burnley, Project Support Worker, The Shop
“I am writing to thank you so much for all the furniture we have acquired from the Big Bright Future Initiative. A small charity like ours is heavily dependant on donations and so to have been able to equip our new Centre – which is very much larger than our previous premises – with such good furniture at minimal cost, is a great bonus for us so thank you very much indeed. All the furniture – tables, computer desks and lots of chairs (desk chairs, easy chairs and computer chairs) which we simply could not have afforded to buy new, is in excellent condition. Everyone – that is our Clients, Volunteers, Staff and Trustees are all extremely grateful to you. Head injury can be a very isolating disability and we do our best to provide a welcoming Centre where people are able to both relax and make progress on their journey of rehabilitation. One of our clients recently said that Headway had been the one motivating factor that had opened new doors and opportunities in life for them, and another said that they no longer felt alone having met people with similar difficulties.” – Joanna Pearse (Mrs), Business Manager, Headway Swindon and District.
