How The Furniture Scheme Operates
Every single furniture and electrical item is provided FREE OF CHARGE.
CTL operate the scheme on a ‘Do unto others as you would like to be done to yourself’ basis. The scheme is run by volunteers who manage the incoming furniture donations, requests for furniture and outgoing deliveries, PAT test electrical equipment, collect and deliver furniture. As the scheme is run by volunteers, it is not possible to provide a “service on demand”.
Order & Despatch Process
- People kindly donate furniture and electrical items
- Items that are donated are stored in a small facility (not open to the public) at the Community Centre
- People in our community make requests for the items they require
- The requests are then checked for availability
- Delivered times from request to action varies typically from 1 to 4 weeks
Donations To The Scheme
The scheme does not receive any income. However, it does have EXPENSES to run its delivery vehicle with insurance, fuel and maintenance costs to bear to keep the scheme in operation.
Consequently, a modest “voluntary” donation of £10 per delivery is sought from people that receive furniture in order to keep this valuable service running for the residents of Leyland and South Ribble.
