Furniture project celebrates its busiest year
AN ‘INVALUABLE’ furniture project delivered nearly 300 items to 100 homes last year.
The King’s Church furniture project, in Amersham, was set up in 2010 and last year was its busiest yet.
Community projects manager at the church, Mike Peters, said: “Since I took on this voluntary role I have been really impressed with the way the furniture project has been run. Our intern Joel, and our other volunteers,
LIFT FOR THE COMMUNITY: King’s Church intern Joel Pallett working for the furniture project work very hard to keep the project running. I had no idea just how many people are helped.”
People donate their furniture to the church which then stores it until a delivery can be made to a person in need in the local area.
Vehicle Rental Services (VRS), in Beaconsfield, picks up the furniture free of charge for the church.
Managing director at VRS, Mark Brandom, said: “We are delighted to be able to support and be associated with the invaluable work of the furniture project at King’s Church.”
