Longfield Community Hospice’s new furniture showroom and warehouse was opened on Thursday by acclaimed actor Susan Lynch, star of Happy Valley, Killing Eve and Downton Abbey.
The furniture showroom, off London Road in Thrupp, is open to the public Monday – Friday from 10am – 4pm and donations are also accepted there, Monday – Friday 10am – 2pm. The full address and times can be found here: www.longfield.org.uk/shops/find-our-shops/
Money raised through furniture sales helps maintain Longfield’s free services which help support and care for more than 2,500 people across the county.
Longfield is also looking for volunteers to help run the new warehouse: “We need van drivers, stock sorting and donations volunteers,” explained Laura Owen, Head of Retail.
“The hours can be flexible around the volunteer but would fall within the times that the warehouse is open.”
The warehouse is also home to the e-commerce team who sort and list items on Longfield’s eBay shop, which currently sells around 650 items a month.
