Furniture collection and delivery has just become easier for West Norfolk Mind thanks to the generosity of fundraisers.

The charity, which has a furniture store in Austin Street, has been able to buy the Luton box van after raising £16,000.

Alex Ware helped to raise £1,000 for the charity at the Bag It! Afternoon tea at Thornham Village Hall .

Mrs Ware and her husband Nick have also directed £1,000 of their marketing budget for their new firm “spaciallyaware”, which helps people with downsizing or de-cluttering, to sponsor the signwriting on the van.

She said: “Our ethos, that as little as possible is thrown away, reflects that of West Norfolk Mind’s Furniture Store and I look forward to continuing to support them in their work within the local community.”

Volunteer co-ordinator Zena Penty has thanked Mr and Mrs Ware along with Jem Whiley, Mark Pheasant and Archie and Sienna Carey for their support to the charity.
