Looking to donate your unwanted furniture to charity? Book a free collection and do your bit to support EACH

A leading children’s charity says its free furniture collection service is a “vital and essential” way to raise much-needed funds. East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) collects unwanted items for free and sells them within selected stores, including Clacton, Hadleigh and Plumstead Road, Norwich.

Funds generated go towards helping EACH support families and care for children and young people across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk. The furniture sections are particularly popular because they stock a range of good-quality furniture, from wardrobes and cupboards to sofas, beds, tables and chairs.

The team also accept and sell electrical items and ‘white goods’ like washing machines, dishwashers, fridges and freezers. EACH Head of Retail Central Operations Sarah Throssell said: “We’re very proud of our furniture showrooms. They boast a great selection of high-quality items at amazing prices.

“We also collect furniture for free and from a wide area. It’s a major plus-point and, without that, we wouldn’t have the stock so it’s a vital, essential service and great way for people to help and support our charity. We welcome donations and all people have to do is contact us to arrange a collection time.

“We inspect everything first and make sure soft furnishings like mattresses and sofas comply with fire regulations, in addition to being in a good, saleable condition. All labelling has to be correct and meet health and safety standards and we don’t tend to take dark-wood items, because they don’t sell.”

To book a furniture collection, head here or call 01255 446999 (if living in North Essex or South Suffolk) or 01223 800800, option six (if living in North Suffolk or Norfolk).

Notes to Editors

“We’d heard about EACH and knew they were a fantastic cause that had supported families we knew, but we never thought we’d be the ones that needed them! Sadly, as fantastic as it is, their service will always be required, and every child who needs their help deserves to have it.”

  • We care for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk, and support their families.
  • We offer families flexibility and control over where they receive their care and support, including where their child dies – at home, in hospital or at one of three hospices at Milton (Cambridge), The Nook (Norfolk) and The Treehouse (Ipswich).
  • Our family-centred approach includes specialist nursing care, symptom management support, short breaks, wellbeing activities, therapies and counselling, all meeting the individual needs of the child, young person and whole family.
  • We are recognised as leaders in our field, with a reputation for excellence and commitment to pioneering development and innovation.
  • We rely on voluntary donations for the majority of our income and this year need to raise £5.5 million from fundraising and £5.4 million in income from our shops. The year before the pandemic we received just 16% of our total income from statutory sources.
  • EACH Royal Patron – Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge.
