Short-list for Stranraer Furniture Project

STRANRAER Furniture Project has been nominated for a major award. They have been short-listed in the category of best social business in the Scottish Enterprise Dumfries and Galloway Business and Learning awards for 2003. The awards ceremony is to be held in Dumfries.

Paul Smith, project manager, said this week:

"This may appear to be just yet another gong, but for us at the Furniture Project it places value on the hard work, dedication and commitment given over the past five years by all the volunteers, trainees and employees at the project.

"The team managed to develop a pilot scheme to a full-scale successful social business, working in partnership with the public. Dumfries and Galloway and the voluntary sector not only offered low-cost, good quality household furniture to low income families, but now providing a removal service to the same customer group and a construction and repair service to community groups, with all services being offered throughout Wigtownshire and sometimes well beyond".
