A CHARITY which works with the homeless is appealing for unwanted furniture.

Calderdale SmartMove, based at Portland Place, Halifax, will collect items free of charge for distribution to its clients.

Volunteer Neil Duffy said white appliances, small sofas and smaller items such as single beds and drawers would be especially welcome.

“Anything that makes a house a home really,” he said.

Less bulky furniture is preferred as it is likely to end up in bedsits and small flats.

Mr Duffy said stocks were low due to a number of factors including more people falling on hard times due to the economic situation and an expansion of the charity’s work.

The charity employs staff who are supported by volunteers.

They play a crucial role and complete a 12-hour training programme before helping in the office, organising stock and working directly with clients.
