Hi all

We're giving up a twin mattress. It's clean, but MANY years old.

My first thought was just to book a collection with the Council, but I thought I'd check to see if there were other local options for donation or use?

How about Crisis at Christnas? They used to quest them sleeping bags etc. For people wth no homes at Christmas . Or Shelter?

Thanks Jan. That's a good idea.

I've started with Crisis and am expecting a call back from the individual in charge of the relevant programme.

Meanwhile if anyone else here knows a good home for the mattress, it's still here in our (small) flat :)

If it has the "no smoking" label on it then British Heart Foundation Old Kent Road will pick up for free and sell in their shop.

Thanks Wooster. That's a good tip. I'll investigate further.
