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.”
