Hospice appeals for unwanted furniture

January 23

St. Joseph’s Hospice is appealing for any unwanted furniture. Plus, if it’s good enough for them to sell in their charity shops, their van drivers will even come and collect it from you absolutely free.

The hospice even offers a whole house clearance service where they will come and remove anything that is good enough to sell.

The hospice has two specialist furniture shops, in Warbreck and Kensington, and it needs to keep them fully stocked up so if you, or someone you know, has some furniture to get rid of, please give them a call.

The hospice also operates smaller charity shops right across Merseyside – in Allerton, Crosby, Formby, Maghull, Netherton, Southport and now on County Road in Liverpool – selling a wide range of goods from jewellery, clothes, toys and books to knick knacks. They are always looking for donations and volunteers to help in the shops so please get in touch if you can help or simply drop in.

Jo Rigby-Clare, retail manager for St. Joseph’s Hospice, said: “Donating your unwanted goods to the hospice makes a significant difference as we raise thousands of pounds every year from sales in our charity shops, through our eBay shop and on Amazon Marketplace, all from donated goods. All the money we raise goes towards helping us provide end of life and palliative care for our patients as well as care and support for their families.

“Please make sure that any soft furnishings, such as sofas, mattresses or upholstered items, have a fire label sewn which meets the British Standards Specification for Fire Safety. Also, donated goods should be in a good, clean condition with no rips, tears or stains. Please think of us when you’re next having a clear out and you will be sure that your goods will be very gratefully received.”
