Beds, cots, bunks and mattresses always needed. Pack and label bolts, screws etc.
We need fire labels and no stains, rips or hard wear on fabrics.
Drawers, bedside drawers, dressers and wardrobes that can be managed inside smaller flats are needed. Check they are empty and clean. If they need dismantling for removal or transport let us know if you can do this.
Dining tables, coffee tables, dining chairs, bookshelves, TV units in good condition
Cabinets, sideboards, welsh dressers, display cabinets- less need -small/medium sizes are best
Sofas, sofabeds, armchairs, occasional chairs, pouffes, ottomans. Often required.
We are offered far more than we can manage. Fire label needed for fabrics/foam/fillings - and no rips, stains, tears, hard wear/fading.
We have very limited facilities for storage and to carry out repair work safely. Minor fixes can be one sometimes when volunteers are available but we rarely have the space, people or resources for a 'lick of paint', ' a quick sand down' or to clean and mend fabrics.
