Donate and help your community

YOUR unwanted furniture could provide a lifeline to another family – and earn points for your parish.

Furniture bank, Preen Community Interest Company, has a reuse centre in Biggleswade.

Household items are donated and sold at a low cost to people who could not afford the items otherwise.

And now your donations will earn points for your town or parish through the Preen Community Challenge.

Preen will give cash and prizes of more than £27,500 to communities who earn the most points in several categories including most tonnage donated, most used goods purchased and highest percentage or residents taking part.

The points could help a youth group, village hall or other community facility.

For larger electrical items or furniture call Preen on 08449 934 399 to arrange for free delivery or see
