Long Business Description:


A Community Interest Company

Platform Two CIC is a not for profit organisation which evolved from an idea between friends Alison and Grace who realised that they had a passion for retail and charity.

Our aim to support local charities and community projects throughout the year, this will be via social media, online sales, events, fundraising and working with the local community.

Our concept is to source donations of clothes, books, Cd’s & DVD’s, small electricals, bric-a-brac, then to sort into online selling, selling at events, upcycling or recycling. This will raise much needed vital funds for their causes and we are environmentally aware of the local recycle footprint.

We help the charities recruit and train volunteers in valuable skills and we also work with colleges in the local area.

We collect all donations across the Fylde Coast, please give us a call.

Thank you for your support.
