Test and Tag Canberra Testimonials

Thanks very much for the tagging last night. It was good to meet you.

Phil, Partner - Wellspring Environmental Arts & Design

Hi Ken, I thought I would just send you a short email to thank you for your sterling efforts in donating your services to check and safety tag the electrical items we were able to offer for sale after contacting your firm. This is the first time in recent years that we have felt able to accept and sell secondhand donated electrical items in a garage sale. On the day we raised nearly $3000, including a much appreciated contribution from the electrical goods (awful though some were). The funds will go towards an existing Quaker Service Australia project constructing toilets in Cambodian villages suitable for use by handicapped people. This sounds, and is, small scale but it is the sort of project QSA does best, filling in after major donors have done larger scale work. Thank you again for your help.

Alex, Canberra Regional Meeting QSA representative

The ATS representative was extremely thorough. She was approachable, friendly and provided advice to us on our faulty powerboard which we appreciated.
