Furniture Donated to Schools & Charities across South Wales
Tuesday, 29 October, 2019
This month we have donated over £20,000 worth of clearance furniture to local schools, charities and community organisations across South Wales and delivered it free of charge.
We are aware that budgets are extremely tight for schools and were keen to help. We often have clearance sales at our showroom to sell ex-stock contract furniture ranges at discounted prices. Our Managing Director suggested donating the furniture to local organisations who could benefit from the ranges.
Our Marketing team put the word out across our social media pages and staff ensured all their school contacts knew about this generous initiative. We had a huge response over the telephones, at our showroom, warehouse and online. Staff worked extremely hard to respond to all the enquiries and help as many customers as possible.
Over 30 organisations have benefitted so far across the boroughs of Bridgend, Rhondda Cynon Taff, Swansea, Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan.
Bridgend based schools such as Heronsbridge, Brynteg Comprehensive, Penybont Primary, Pencoed Primary, Croesty Primary and Archbishop McGrath Comprehensive have already received their desks, tables, chairs, bookcases, cupboards and lockers.
"Thank you very much for giving us the opportunity to visit BOF. We received delivery of a number of items yesterday and just wanted to thank you for your kind donation, it is very much appreciated. The delivery drivers were extremely helpful and did a superb job of stacking the items in a small space! Thanks again."
Andrea Howells, School Manager - Pencoed Comprehensive School
