Furniture charity receives continued support from Thames Valley Housing
Published by Jenny Sandford for Thames Valley Housing Association in Housing and also in Communities
A furniture recycling project in Merton has been given a boost for the second year running by Thames Valley Housing (TVH). The charity has been granted funding through TVH’sCommunity ChestFund, which supports important local work.
Christian Care provides good quality furniture and household items to Merton residents in need. Pat Spencer, Project Co-Ordinator said “we are so grateful that TVH have helped us for a second year running. It is often difficult for us to secure funding as we aren’t doing anything new and exciting, but we are doing some very worthwhile.”
Sahil Khan, TVH’s Community Investment Manager, said “We chose to reinvest in this project because it’s run by a small and dedicated group of volunteers, in an area where we have a lot of residents that can and have benefitted from it.”
Christian Care is committed to the relief of poverty in the London Borough of Merton and runs a range of projects. As well as the Furniture Project, it befriends, provides food, and organises paid outings and holidays for people on very low incomes. It is run entirely by volunteers.
