Harrogate’s community furniture store, Essential Needs received some extra help when a rather special volunteer arrived to assist with deliveries.  Throughout lockdown Essential Needs has been collecting essential items of donated furniture and making important deliveries, all within carefully planned Covid safe procedures.

“Lockdown may have slowed life up a little” said manager, Lee Wright, “but it certainly hasn’t stopped it altogether and people still need essential items of furniture if they are moving into a new house or flat and have absolutely nothing.  For customers who are on a means tested benefit or low income there’s a 30% discount on the price of all pre-owned furniture.  We also now sell brand new beds at affordable prices, starting from only £99.00.  During lockdown we are open mornings and for essential items only, but we hope to be back to our usual hours soon.”

Essential Needs is a registered charity situated on back Gladstone Street, where it has been for 25 years.  It is open to everyone and as well as providing low cost, good quality items to people in furniture poverty, it has formed partnerships with Harrogate Women’s Aid IDAS, Harrogate Street Aid and a number of local churches to help those most in need in the district.

“We’re always busy” said Lee “so we were very pleased Father Christmas found time to give us a hand.”
