Woods Furniture's pre-Christmas sale to raise money for local charities

From 14th-21st November, Dorchester furniture store Woods Furniture, will be running a special pre-Christmas sale with major discounts on a huge range of top name quality brands such as Neptune and Ercol. During that week, Woods will be donating 2% of its turnover to two locally-based charities - Julia's House, which provides practical and emotional support for families of children with a life-limiting condition, and Mosaic-Supporting Bereaved Children, a Dorset-wide organisation offering support to bereaved children, young people and their families.

Hamish McGhee, MD of Woods Furniture, says: "Our pre-Christmas sale is a really special week. It's our way of thanking our customers and giving something back to the community. We feel very strongly about our two nominated charities who both do amazing and much-needed work locally. We hope to make our customers happy and add to their Christmas spirit in the knowledge that their purchase will not only enhance their home and bring them pleasure but will also be contributing to these incredible organisations."

Martin Edwards, chief executive of Julia's House, says: "We greatly appreciate the generous support of Woods Furniture and their customers. Their gift will help us to continue giving the very specialist help that families need when faced with the round-the-clock physical and emotional demands of caring for a child with a life-limiting condition."

Margaret Hannibal MBE, CEO of Mosaic, adds: "We support bereaved children, young people and their families who are finding it difficult to understand the overwhelming feelings the death of a loved one can bring.  This wonderful support from Woods Furniture will enable us to provide them with individual counselling and the opportunity to meet other young people who share their experience."

To add to the enjoyment of the week, Woods Furniture store will be already decorated for Christmas. It will be transformed into one big Christmas display complete with a 6ft high angel and a reindeer that is more than 8ft tall. Woods guarantees that furniture bought during this  sale week will be delivered using its professional White Glove service in time for Christmas.
