Can an old sofa change the world? We believe it can! We’ve teamed up with local community-led charity Furniture Now! to help reduce waste and poverty across Sussex.
In the UK over 10 million household items, like furniture and electrical goods, are sent to landfill every year; a hefty contribution to our mounting waste and pollution problem.
Perhaps more astonishingly, at least 3 million of these items could be reused immediately; highlighting not only the huge environmental, but also social cost of our throw-away society.
Furniture Now!, which celebrates its 25-year anniversary this year, is part of the Now! Charity Group, which provides essential household items and life-changing community experiences to people in need or at risk of social exclusion. We’ll be supporting Furniture Now!’s efforts by encouraging more people to recycle, reuse and relove.
We’ve created a dedicated Furniture Now! Online Shop which features low cost, high quality furniture, household and electrical goods for sale at their stores in Eastbourne, Hailsham and Lewes.
We’re also asking our community of users to donate their unwanted furniture and household goods – because sometimes you need the space more than the money! You can get your stuff collected FREE of charge AND change someone else’s life for the better…
Feeling the “Re-Love”? Help us transform lives in your community….!
Donate your unwanted furniture!

“We’re big on community at the Friday-Ad, and we’re really excited about the difference we can make to people in need in our local area. We encourage all of our users to get involved… because their old sofa might just change someone’s life for the better!” said Tinka Carrick, Marketing Manager at the Friday-Ad.
Michael Ryan, CEO, Now! Charity Group said “We’re delighted to have the Friday-Ad’s support in growing our furniture donations and sales. Income from our Furniture Now! stores is vital to funding life-changing community experiences and our ‘Projects for Good’. We’ve been impressed with how invested the Friday-Ad team has been in supporting our cause. Our partnership really is the perfect way to kick-start our 25th anniversary celebrations.”
The partnership was the brainchild of Rob Hancock, who has been with the Friday-Ad for over 20 years and now heads up its charitable arm, the Friday Media Group Foundation.
