Objectives

Leeds and Moortown Furniture Store was created in 1986 by a group of dedicated volunteers from  Leeds, who in the course of their work came into contact with people who had little basic furniture.

Activities

Aware that good second-hand furniture was often going to waste, they began to collect and re-distribute those items, often in their car boots before progressing on to using a horsebox! Initially the work was undertaken from a variety of buildings, a church hall, the basement of an empty house and the organiser’s cellar, all of which were temporary and most of which were too small
