STAFF and volunteers at Salvation Army charity shop in Leven are calling on people to donate their unwanted items of small portable furniture to help the shop meet rising local demand for affordable second-hand pieces.

Over the past few months the shop has witnessed a growing number of people seeking small items of second-hand furniture and the team is appealing to local people to hunt through their homes, sheds, attics and garages, and bring any unwanted pieces to the store to be sold.

Donations could include small, portable items such as side tables, nests of tables, coffee tables, bedside cabinets, small chairs and stools.

People are advised to drop them off during opening hours (Monday–Saturday, 9am-5pm) wherever possible.

However, those with difficulty transporting their items are advised to call the shop, as it may be possible to arrange a collection.

“Lots of people will have a small item of furniture that they no longer really want and is currently cluttering the garage or garden shed,” said Arlene McKenna, local area manager.
