HAVE you got a leather sofa looking for a new loving home? Or how about a dining room table and chairs that are just not getting the use they deserve? St Clare has the answer!

The Hastingwood-based hospice runs a free furniture collection service across West Essex and the borders of East Herts, the catchment area of the charity, and the sale of donated furniture in their eight shops raises approximately £100,000 every year. The charity is looking to grow this, by offering a new easy way to sign-up for a collection online, and by launching a furniture donation-drive across their patch.

St Clare Hospice’s Head of Retail, Fiona Eaton, said: “Donations of furniture are an absolutely vital source of income for St Clare – and help to contribute to the half a million pounds which our shops are targeted to raise each and every year. Our customers love to find a sofa in good condition, a chest of drawers which they can up-cycle, or even a divan bed and mattress in our stores. If you are looking to redecorate or have a change of style at home, please think of St Clare Hospice as your first port of call for your pre-loved, good quality furniture!”

Outlining the furniture collection service, Fiona said: “We have made it easier than ever before to donate your furniture to St Clare. You can simply log on to the Furniture page on our website, check if the item you want to donate can be accepted, and pick a date to suit you. Alternatively you can call our Furniture donation number and book a slot over the phone. Our van drivers cover more than 18,000 miles every year, driving around Epping Forest, Uttlesford, Harlow and Bishop’s Stortford, collecting furniture donations from the homes of generous supporters.”

St Clare is particularly looking to receive donations of: sofas and armchairs; dining tables and chairs; occasional tables and quality bookcases; wardrobes, dressing tables and chests of drawers; and divans with mattresses. Please note St Clare can only accept soft furnishings that have fire labels attached. See their website for details of the items which can be accepted.
