News: Hospice Appeal for Furniture

Posted on 8th March 2016

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.

Testimonials

"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "

Steve Cridland, CEO
(Burgess Hill Town Council)

"The BHBPA is a fantastic hub for our business community to get together and catch up, discuss important local issues and connect new and interesting enterprises."

Oliver Lashley , Director
(Pure Storm Digital Services )

"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."

Wendy Agate, Community Fund Raising Manager
(St Peter & St James Hospice)

"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."
