The generosity of major UK supermarket chain Morrisons has boosted the work of the Haven furniture project. Furniture store manager Mandy Clements travelled to Kettering with local Salvationist Paul Ozanne to collect 14 new baby cots. Mandy commented: "We will be looking to use these cots to help those most in need. We occasionally have young girls approaching us for help. Some are in desperate situations and these cots will be really useful."
While in Kettering Mandy was also given a tour of the Kettering Textile recycling centre. Clothing donated through the nationwide Salvation Army clothing bank programme is transported to Kettering where it is carefully sorted by the Textile company. The tour clearly had an impact on Mandy, who reported: "To see the scale of this operation and the way everything is so well used was just mind-blowing. The trip was really worthwhile."
The Salvation Army furniture project relies on donated goods from members of the public and businesses; enabling us to offer quality furniture at very reasonable prices.
