Hospice needs furniture donations


St. Joseph’s Hospice is appealing to the local community to donate furniture, electrical items and white goods for its charity shops.

The hospice operates ten charity shops across Merseyside, three of which, in Kensington, Warbreck and County Road, sell furniture, household goods and electrical items.

The hospice offers a free collection service and will pick up any goods that it is able to sell in its shops. Call 0151 525 3072 to arrange a furniture collection.

St. Joseph’s Hospice raises over £100k each year from its charity shops and it all goes directly to the hospice, providing hospice care and services to families from across the local community.

Jo Rigby-Clare, retail manager for St., Joseph’s Hospice, said: “Stocks are currently low in our furniture shops and so we need your help. We need tables, cupboards, lamps, shelves, mattresses, sofas and chairs, plus electric items and white goods that are in full working order. Our van drivers will even come and collect it absolutely free if we can sell it. They will even come and do a whole house clearance and remove anything that is good enough to sell.

“Please remember we can only collect items that we can sell so they must be in a good, clean condition and in full working order. Also, all soft furnishings, such as sofas, mattresses or upholstered items, must have a fire label sewn which meets the British Standards Specification for Fire Safety.”

If you’d like to arrange a house-clearance or furniture collection, please call us on 0151 525 3072.
