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 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. "
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"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."
""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.""
