A Horsham charity is holding a sale of excess stock as it prepares to move back to its permanent home in Guildford Road at the weekend.

One half of the Tanbridge Garage site is still being converted into a supermarket, but apart from plans to install a lift, work to the Horsham Matters charity centre is complete and from Saturday the new upstairs area will be open with new displays of bric-brac, small electrical items, books and CDs and children’s toys.

While the work was being carried out the charity had temporary use of a warehouse in Unit D3 of the Blatchford Road industrial estate, where they will hold a one-day sale on Saturday June 23 between 10am and 3pm. Items for sale include three-piece suites, tables, chairs, and wardrobes.

Operations manager Guy Sherlock said: “Local residents have been incredibly generous. Over the last few months we’ve been able to support a number of local families with goods that they would not otherwise have been able to afford as well as providing goods to a number of other local charities including the Amber Foundation and Sussex Central YMCA.

“We now want to give everyone in Horsham a chance to grab a real bargain. All our excess stock will be available to anyone who wants to make a donation – no reasonable offer will be refused.”

There is plenty of parking, but buyers are advised theywill have to take goods the same day.
