Celebrating 20 years!

Friday saw The Furniture Station celebrate our 20th Anniversary with an exclusive celebration evening dedicated to our outstanding volunteers & supporters group.Quartet of singers from City of Manchester Opera

The evening started with a surprise classical performance delivered by a quartet of singers from the City of Manchester Opera company, followed by Outstanding Volunteer Awards delivered to all current volunteers and ended with King of Swing Mr Alan Burton singing classic & contemporary tunes to dance to.

The evening went ahead with the kind support of Millercare Hazel Grove, Bollington Insurance, Allens Accountants, Booth Ainsworth, Real Camera Co, Lambs’ Car & Commercial Ltd, Litha Print, Hazel Grove Flowers & Cheshire Conference & Events. The evening would not have been able to go ahead without these sponsors, we thank you all for your generosity.

The Furniture Station is proud to celebrate an incredible milestone of 20 years. 20 years of helping families & individuals in Stockport with the basics of furniture & household items so that those who may not be able to afford basic items elsewhere can be provided the opportunity to sleep safely on a mattress, cook meals using a cooker or microwave oven & and be provided with a cot for their infants for a nominal fee.volunteer awards

We are proud to work alongside outstanding volunteers who continue to lend their free time (an annual total of 3,500+ hours) to support this work and are blessed to have the ongoing support of our supporters group contributing monthly donations towards our core costs. shutterstock_146949359
