SOFA Project

Named from the acronym to Shift Old Furniture Around, ‘SOFA' (as the charity is more usually known) collects good quality furniture and appliances from local households and businesses. The SOFA Project operates in the area formerly known as Avon, with headquarters in West St, Old Market. We collect household furniture and appliances from households on a daily basis. The items are brought back to our premises, and in the case of electrical appliances fully refurbished, before being made available at a low a price as possible in our retail outlets. These can then be delivered to the new owners.

Working alongside this we have two other main activities, an electrical workshop and an office furniture operation.

The electrical workshop has the potential to repair and refurbish up to 100 major appliances a week.
