The Furniturelink Fund will enable us to offer fully funded furniture to those who are really in need. Your kind donations will really make a difference to those struggling in our local community.
No one in Surrey should struggle to furnish their own homes – so please donate any amount that you can and support us in our mission to ensure that this doesn’t continue to happen.

Due to being a small charity we can’t afford staff uniform, which generally isn’t an issue for Warehouse staff because our staff are usually easily identified by our regulars or given a warm welcome on arrival anyway.
However, we would love to be able to get uniform for our van driver, and drivers mate in addition to our volunteers that go out on the van to lend a hand. The reason we would like to do this is because they are the face of our small charity and we all know first impressions count so we would love for them to look smart and represent Furniturelink when going into customers homes.
We also need to ensure we supply all staff with the correct PPE Boots for safety reasons and these come at a cost too but we don’t want our staff or volunteers getting injured whilst they’re working hard to support our local community!
We are currently looking at getting several pairs of PPE Boots, in addition to polo shirts with the furniturelink logo, in addition to personalised hi-vis jackets for volunteers out on the van.

Sometimes we get furniture donated to us that is too good to dump, but isn’t good enough to sell as it is and therefore to reduce waste we like to restore and up-cycle certain pieces that come through the door.
Not only does this reduce waste, but it also allows us to offer more volunteering opportunities and enable people to gain new skills.
Unfortunately we aren’t able to up-cycle as much as we would like due to lack of correct tools and materials for our volunteers to use and therefore we are raising money to enable us to purchase some tools for our staff and volunteers to use in the warehouse to restore our donated furniture.
An example of a few tools we would like to get are as follows:
