We love to hear why people Freegle - it keeps our volunteers volunteering, and it helps show new freeglers what it's all about.
So please tell us your story!
"It runs in the family"
Long before Freegle (and computers) My Grandfather often said that we should treat those around us as we would want to be treated. Now I'm a Grandfather and Freegling is an first class way of maintaining the family tradition.
Oh my goodness, where do I start?
I have been a member of this site for ever and have recieved and given many items, including; a piano, summer outdoor settee, clothes, plants, tables, the list goes on!
Basically it's a great way to do our bit for the environment, save money and breath new life in to old, tired items.
Mostly stuff that is no longer used and the space it occupies is more valuable to me than the object.
I like to see people putting good use to things I can't use any more.
I do get things as well which keeps the cycle going.
"Our Community Garden overlooks the sea and we were given a small shed. Through an offer on freegle we were able to get a sliding door unit. "
I run the Easintong Community Garden and we overlook the sea and can see down the coast to North Yorkshire. We were given a small shed and the view was blocked by the door and the front only had two small windows. I saw an offer on the freegle site and we were able to get a large glazed sliding door which fitted the front of the shed. We now can sit in the shed on good and bad days and admire the coastal views and the ships entering or leaving Teesport. We can now say that we have the best view from any Community Garden in all of East Durham, thanks to freegle.
