King's Furniture is a charity reuse scheme which began when one person in the church matched up someone in the community who needed some home furnishings with someone else who had some unwanted items. A lot has happened since that first informal act of kindness nearly 20 years ago.
The scheme has always been aimed towards those on income based benefits, but all are welcome to come and take a look. We have everything from bedroom, living room and dining room furniture. We also have white goods, small electrical items, clothes and some rare bric a brac treats in our room of paraphernalia.
Last year we recycled over 100 tons of furniture, helping thousands of individuals and families in Darlington, providing over 4,500 items.
Although the scale is bigger now, we are still doing the same thing – demonstrating God’s love and concern in a very practical way to people in need in our community. Any profits go back into other ministries within the church, including our Foodbank and Community Cafe.
After all, King’s Furniture is not just about furniture, it’s about people!
