We're so excited to invite you and your friends to this ReNu Showcase and Auction Event. It’s a free event so save the date in your calendar and don’t miss the chance to enjoy an uplifting night out with a difference.

Barnabus ReNu Up-cycling Furniture ProjectThis event is in celebration of our ReNu, Up-cycling Furniture project. ReNu is an inspiring, creative, activity providing employable skills and employment and training opportunities for out of work, homeless men and women. This event is a chance to celebrate our students achievements and hear inspiring stories of how this project is helping the homeless. You will also have the chance to bid for unique pieces of up-cycled furniture, produced using much sought after shabby chic and distressing techniques in our charity auction. Monies raised through sales Barnabus ReNu Up-cycling Furniture Projectwill be 100% invested back into this life changing sustainable project.

There will be an opportunity to meet the tutor, students and Barnabus staff. We really hope you can come along and support this Showcase event. If you're not free and want to support this project please consider donating to our fundraising page www.justgiving.com/BarnabusReNu

We want to thank our friends at Ziferblat* in the trendy Northern Quarter of Manchester for astounding us with their generosity by offering us their Studio venue, free of charge and also free refreshments as well, absolutely incredible! We're so delighted to have our showcase event here in such an innovative and creative venue; a fitting place to showcase our creatively inspired ReNu project.

*Ziferblat is a new concept defying conventional café culture, it was developed in Moscow by a group of poets searching for a creative space to meet. When you go to a regular café you pay for your drinks, cakes and refreshments and are limited to the time you can stay there. But at Ziferblat they turn this idea upside down and instead you're free to stay as long as you like, you can choose from a mouthwatering array of refreshments and you're only charged for the time you spend there. So if you're in Manchester, Liverpool or London seek out this great place to hang out, work, socialise or relax.
