Celebrations were in full swing to mark the successful launch of Upcycle Birmingham in Castle Vale.
Guests gathered for afternoon tea as they discovered more about the social enterprise that brings new life to furniture and homes.
There was plenty of opportunity for networking as key figures from the city’s leading third sector organisations turned out in force.
The event was held at Upcycle Birmingham’s state-of-the-art training unit and showroom in the OYO Business Park, Park Lane.
Upcycle Birmingham is the result of a unique partnership between Castle Vale Tenants and Residents’ Alliance (CVTRA), Castle Vale Community Housing Association (CVCHA) and its Employment and Enterprise Trust Fund. All three bodies that have helped fund the project are committed to providing help, information and support for residents in Castle Vale and east Birmingham.
