|Donations for Dorcas Project|
Dorcas Project is often asked to help people who are setting up home without anything and it is therefore the basic items that are the most needed. These include: -
We do ask for a donation of up to £10 to help towards our operational costs and to reduce the charge made for the furniture packages which often has to be met by the client at a time of extreme financial hardship.
What we can accept and how quickly we can collect varies depending on the time of the year and how busy we are. For details, please telephone the SCRATCH office on 023 8077 3132 (the telephone is answered weekdays 9.30am to 4.30pm). We usually need one weeks notice to collect, although often can can collect much quicker
All items collected need to be in a good condition i.e. no stains on the mattress or tears on the settee. We cannot collect large items of furniture, simply because the homes that we deliver to are usually very small, i.e. bedsits, converted houses and tower blocks.
Please note that furniture items such as three piece suites, settees and arm chairs must have the fire safety certificate on them (conforming to the 1988 fire safety regulations). This restriction has been imposed on us by our insurance company.
