Local pubs, bars, cafes and even garden centres across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland are showcasing the pre-loved furniture that LOROS Hospice has to offer as part of their latest campaign.

Dozens of quality pieces of furniture will be available for you to try out, so see if you can spot one of our once loved pieces of furniture that’s so good, no-one would ever know it’s from a charity shop.

Ann Middleton, shop manager of the Uppingham Road furniture shop said: “We’re really excited to be able to show-off some of the furniture we have. There’s a wide variety of items here, old and new as well as some antique pieces, so it’s definitely worth a look.”

LOROS Hospice is hoping to dispel any myths surrounding charity shops while encouraging shoppers to step outside their comfort zone and try buying from charity.

“It’s great for those who are just moving into a new home and perhaps can’t afford to splash out on new furniture.

“If you’re into upcycling, there are plenty of pieces that people can get their hands on and get creative with, and let’s face it, people will only know it’s from a charity shop if you tell them!

“We are always taking in new stock, so even if you don’t find what you’re looking for one day, it’s worth popping back in for a browse because who knows what we’ll have next.” added Ann. The ‘Choose Charity, Shop LOROS’ campaign features furniture from two of the 29 LOROS Charity Shops which offer so much more than you’d expect.

The two furniture shops are based on Uppingham Road and Welford Road in Leicester and offer a full range of furniture for each room in the house.

If anyone spots a piece of furniture out and about in the city and county, the Hospice are encouraging people to take a photo and tag them in it on social media using the hashtag #shoploros.
