Securing new beds with the help of Vernon Building Society’s Jubilee Fund

The  Furniture Station has been successfully chosen to receive a grant from 2012’s Vernon Building Society’s Jubilee Fund, a fund aimed at helping local community and charitable groups looking to make a difference in their area.

The Vernon Building Society awarded over £10,000 to 16 local organisations; those successful attended a presentation evening held in November to recognise the work they are carrying out in the community and present them with their awarded amount.

The Furniture Station was generously awarded with £990 to go towards the purchase of ten new double beds for our clients.

The bed & cot fund is a vital fund to continue to seek support on throughout each year to make up for the high demand. Each year we aim to raise a minimum of £7,000 towards the essential purchases. It is when people are relocated and rehoused that they often have nothing, most without the basic bed to sleep on.  With the help of The Vernon Building Society, these beds will enable our clients to have a good nights sleep and in the long term assist them to maintain their tenancy and establish stability.
