Three reasons to donate furniture to Martlets

Could you donate furniture to a charity? Martlets is on the lookout for new donations of second-hand furniture to sell in our shops.

Donating furniture to us is a great way to give back to your community while also decluttering your home. Not only does it help those in need, but it also saves useful items from going into landfill.  

Demand for second-hand furniture has never been higher. So, if you are thinking of having a clear out, please think of us. Here are three reasons to donate to Martlets Charity Shops: 

1. You can make a positive impact on your community. 

When you donate furniture to Martlets, you help fund life-changing hospice care in our community. We will sell your donations of furniture in 3 of our 9 charity shops across Brighton & Hove and coastal East Sussex.  

The funds raised from furniture sales go towards paying for care for people living through terminal illness in our area. By donating, you will be giving back to your local hospice and in turn helping people in our community. 

2. It’s good for the environment.

When you donate furniture to Martlets charity shops, you are also doing your part to help the environment. Instead of sending your old furniture to a landfill, donating it gives it a second life. This reduces the amount of waste. It also helps conserve natural resources.  

Additionally, manufacturing new furniture requires a significant amount of energy and resources. By donating your old furniture, you are reducing your carbon footprint. 

3. It’s a convenient way to declutter your home.

Donating furniture to a charity shop is a convenient way to declutter your home. Instead of trying to sell your furniture or hauling it to the landfill, you can simply drop it off at a charity shop. This can save you time and effort, and it can also free up space in your home. When you donate to a charity shop, you know that your furniture will be put to good use, and you don’t have to worry about finding a new home for it yourself.
