What we do

The Braunstone Residents’ Network is a group of dedicated residents on the Braunstone estate who want to bring the community together.  Our group, over the years has run various initiatives to raise funds, to re-invest back in to the local Community.

Our group of lively volunteers operates a micro-community business called ‘The Garage Sale’.   We are based at the Neighbourhood Support Base on Wellinger Way (LE3 1RG) and open our sale from 1.30pm to 3.30pm every Wednesday.  We accept donations of: clothes, toys, small electrical appliances and bric-a-brac.  We then sell the pre-loved donations on, to raise funds to run a variety of activities.

We put-on low-cost trips for community members (which we heavily subsidise), we organise a range of community events, make regular donations to community groups and individuals who are in need. We are always looking for volunteers to help support our fundraising efforts along, with donations of good quality items.  For more information or to get involved please drop in to: The Neighbourhood Support Base 45 Wellinger Way, Braunstone, Leicester, LE3 1RG or call us on: 0116 223 2256.

We would really like Braunstone Residents to support each other and currently our Facebook group community has over 500 members.  This is a platform to find out more about; what we do, what’s going on in and around the area, and to share useful community information.

Please join us to be part of our wonderful community.
