Hospice appeals for unwanted furniture
St Peter & St James Hospice Charity Shops sell a huge variety of quality donated items, all of which raise considerable sums to support the Hospice. Among the fastest selling is furniture – in fact, it sells so quickly that the stocks are really in need of a boost! The Hospice Shops offer a free collection service for your unwanted furniture, including conservatory and garden items, as well as white goods.
When downsizing, moving, clearing a house or just updating your furniture, please think of St Peter & St James and donate your unwanted items, avoid landfill and let the Hospice Shops find good new homes for your pre-loved furniture. Sofas, three-piece suites, coffee tables, standard lamps, dining tables with chairs, kitchen tables, sideboards, dressers, bookcases, desks, beds, wardrobes, bedroom furniture, fridges and freezers are all wanted. Soft furnishings, unless vintage or antique, will need to meet fire safety regulations with appropriate labelling. Electrical goods need to be in good condition and working order.
Thérèse Wilson, Head of Retail for St Peter & St James Hospice, said, “With our dedicated superb furniture shops in Lewes and Lindfield, as well as our smaller outlets that sell furniture, we have an astounding opportunity to really increase funds for the Hospice – we just need more furniture!”
If you would like to support St Peter & St James Hospice through the donation of furniture and white goods, please call the donation line on 01444 470205. We also offer a competitive part and whole house clearance service, so to use this please call 01444 470817.
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""
