Te-Cycle and support our local charity

Once upon a time … whilst rooting around in the depths of Broadoaks we came across a sad sight that brought a tear to our eye and made us start to ponder…

In an old cardboard box gathering dust was a collection of beautiful cups, in desperate need of some love these decorative items that were made with care and craftsmanship in a time that is all but forgotten.

Before mass production and our throw away culture, was a land where these items were cherished, the focus of the dinner table and the envy of the neighbours. Carefully used and lovingly stored, brought out for special occasions and those important times, party to all kinds of conversations, the keepers of a lifetime of secrets, faithful, loyal and loved.

They all deserve a better life so hence our Te-Cycle programme to bring them back to life again. An old companion with a new purpose, the opportunity to be appreciated again and once more the centre of attention.

"My name is Old Vintage Rosie, I was stuck in a cabinet for the last 30 years, I was only brought out once for a dolls tea party. I joined the Broadoaks team only 4 weeks ago and it has been amazing! I have been so busy I haven't had time to think, I've become so warm on the inside again I hope it never ends"

“Hi I’m Violet blue, but only in colour now thanks to Broadoaks. All I used to stare at was the back of cupboard door with the odd cobweb, I’m a little scared of spiders so it wasn’t great. Things couldn’t be more different now, I attended a lovely couples surprise birthday meal last night and tomorrow I am going to a wedding”

“My name is Ivy, after my life partner just “cracked up“ one day I thought it was the end, no more fire side chats or afternoons in the garden. I felt so sad, that was until I was taken to Broadoaks now I get to see all kinds of scenery and I’m always so clean and presentable, I couldn’t wish for more“


Te Cycle is a way for all of us to give an old cup a new start, it is also an extra way in which we can support our nominated charity Read how to help and get involved in our charity partnership here on our charity page.
