The Shaftesbury Society, 020 8239 5555, say they will collect furniture type-stuff in good condition for formerly homeless people who have been housed. They advertise in local housing co-ops etc, but I have to say that when I have phoned them they haven't been very helpful. However, it's a good cause, so worth a try. Only other place I can think of is the British Heart Foundation shop in the Old Kent Road
(a bit nearer the Elephant than Tesco, same side of road). They sell a lot of second hand furniture & they will pick up. I don't know of any charity that will collect second hand clothes & similar - usually when you phone them, as I expect you've found, the first thing they say is 'We don't collect'.
Maybe other people have more ideas. Good luck.
