Volunteers from St Richard's Hospice and the Duckworth Trust supported the Worcester event and Newstarts furniture project helped out in Bromsgrove.
NewStarts is a Bromsgrove based furniture re-use charity that aims to help meet the needs of people on low incomes at the point when they are moving into social housing following a period of homelessness, or other personal or financial crisis, by providing furniture and household goods donated by private individuals and commercial organisations.
NewStarts plans to use 1 Sherwood Road to store furniture and household goods, which it collects free from across Worcestershire before they are distributed to people moving into a new home.
