A shortage of furniture stock has prompted staff and volunteers at a charity shop to launch an appeal.

The Peace Hospice Care shop, in Shenley Road, is urging the community to pick up the phone and donate good quality unwanted furniture to raise money for the charity.

Tables, sofas, chairs, electrical goods and any other furniture are wanted to fill the Peace Hospice van and the high street shop floor.

Shop manager Michelle Smith, who has worked at the shop for the past four years, said: “Just give us a ring and we can collect. Our furniture sells really well here but over the past couple of months, good quality donations have gone dropped.

“We simply need more. The more donations we receive, the more money we raise for the hospice.”

Peace Hospice Care will also visit 96 Shenley Road for a coffee morning, providing tea, coffee and cake for donations for the charity.

Allison Tromans-Nunes of Peace Hospice Care said: “Many people are unaware that our nurses visit patients with life-limiting illnesses at home in Borehamwood and throughout south west Hertfordshire to provide care and support. We hope that lots of local people will join us for tea, coffee and cake to find out more about our work in the area.”

The coffee morning will take place on Monday, July 21 between 10am and 12pm.
