Cheap furniture offer for Wiltshire residents
8:00am Sunday 13th October 2013 in News
A Wiltshire charity that offers cut-price furniture to people without a wage is extending its customer criteria to help working households that are feeling the pinch.
Recycling charity Waste Not Want Not (WNWN) collects unwanted furniture and household goods for free, to pass on at affordable prices.
Last year it helped 2,130 people to furnish their homes.
Since it began in 2002, WNWN’s customers have included people on state benefits, senior citizens and students.
Now, the Chippenham-based charity is widening its customer base to include anyone whose household income is below £20,000 a year.
Manager Phil Reade said: “Thousands are feeling the pinch right now.”
To accommodate working people, from this Saturday WNWN’s Hungerdown Lane showroom will extend its opening hours to include Saturdays, from 10am to 2pm.
Weekday openings are Monday to Thursday, 9.30am to 4pm and Friday, 9.30am to 3pm.
To donate unwanted items of furniture, call 01249 447140.
