Charity Begins At Show Home! Developer Donates Furniture To Support Homeless
11 May 2017

People often ask what happens to show home furniture and the soft furnishings once the jewel in the development’s crown has sold and the items are no longer needed.

Well, in the case of Linden Homes East Yorkshire, several deliveries of unused and pre-loved items from show homes across the region have been donated and delivered to a well-known Hull charity to support the homeless.

The huge list includes; beds, chairs, dining tables, desks, filing cabinets and sofas to bed linen, mirrors, lamps, and soft furnishings.

The special delivery to Emmaus Hull & East Riding was made by LHEY sales manager Julie Hubbard and connections manager Gizzy Murray.

Emmaus supports formerly homeless people by giving them a home, meaningful work in a social enterprise and an opportunity to get back on their feet again.

Alex Slater, business manager at the charity, said: “This generous donation from Linden Homes is extremely appreciated and so many well cared for pieces of furniture and home comforts will make such a difference to a large number of people we help through the charity.”

Linden Homes East Yorkshire sales director Steve Woomble said: “As we are a Hessle-based business and the nature of what we do is to provide safe and secure homes for people in and around the region – it seemed very fitting for us to donate our pre-loved office and show home furniture to a worthy charity.”
