Freegive connects people who are giving and getting stuff for free in their own towns. It's all about reuse and keeping good stuff out of landfills and, at the same time, helping someone in your community by gifting them the item you no longer need. Clear out your cupboards, attics, sheds and garages with minimal effort. Working or easily repairable goods, such as furniture, recycle toys, recycle car parts, recycle beds, recycle sofas anything that is taking up space can be passed on to someone else if you are upgrading your own. Best of all, it's completely free to join. Visit Freegive home page at: http://www.freegive.co.uk

Freegive group is active in all London Boroughs, please find a group near you at http://www.freegive.co.uk/groupfg.htm

Summary: everyone should join!

This is great - is it similar to Freegle or Freecycle? I know Freecycle went global a while ago and there was some debate about what it should be called here in the UK.

A good opportunity for me to plug another new (and this time British born) website called [www.streetbank.com] which does more or less the same thing, but is much smaller and still only starting out. It's doing really well in Hammersmith and Fulham - and now East Dulwich too.

We've recently seen sombrero hats and piano's being lent and given away (in that order) and there have also been some very happy tales of new friendships forming as a result, too.

The more people who join, the better the site becomes so do please spread the word if you can. It's so easy to join and is a great way to bring communities together - as well as save money and energy too, of course.
