The Furniture Station

Provision of beds & cots for struggling families

Imagine not having a bed to sleep in! We are seeking funding for new beds, the provision of beds for themselves and for their children is one of the most basic needs our clients have, but not enough good quality beds are donated.

Location

  • I felt I’d been given a bit of a head start with a bit of help and comfort – I don’t honestly think I’d have stayed at my flat with no bed and bedding

  • A couple only had a moses basket for their baby. They could not believe they had been supported in this way and felt it was an excellent service.

  • The Furniture Station was a real God send for people who do not have anything through no fault of their own

Situation

Due to health and safety reasons, we are limited to the number of beds we can accept from donors, and can only supply new cots. With a high demand for such essential items, there is a waiting list for those which do come in.

Solution

We therefore need to seek funding to purchase new beds and cots for our clients. It costs just £65.00 to purchase a single bed and £99.00 for a double bed, cots are £110. Our target for funding these items is £7,000.
