“We can’t do it alone, which is why we’re calling on the generous Preston community to volunteer a few hours of their time, donate good quality items or grab a bargain.”

As well as furniture, the store, which opens daily between 9am and 6pm, also boasts a large selection of clothing, accessories, homeware and books - all of which have been donated.
