Glossopdale Furniture Project is urgently appealing for donations of furniture and household items so it can continue to support individuals and families in need throughout the High Peak.
The charity's retail outlets on Pikes Lane and George Street in Glossop are both currently closed during lockdown, and it is only operating an emergency service to continue to provide help for those who need it by means of referral.
The charity says its stock of essential items is "running extremely low" and it's in desperate need of donations of beds and mattresses - especially doubles and singles. Other items of furniture will also be considered if they meet the criteria for reuse, while all items are subject to acceptance when seen.
Anyone who can help in any way is asked to fill in the collection enquiry form on its website at http://glossopdalefurnitureproject.co.uk/ and someone will contact you to arrange collection.
The charity said in a statement: "The current Covid-19 pandemic is currently putting significant additional pressure on the Project as we endeavour to support those individuals and families in need. The demands being placed on the Project is increasing and, with the restrictions placed on our operation, the situation is causing us extreme difficulties in meeting those demands.
"If you are able to deliver your donations to our Pikes Lane warehouse, please indicate this on the collection form and we will schedule a time for you to do this. Delivered donations will only be accepted by appointment.
"Please do not leave items at the gate when the Project is closed. This is 'fly tipping' and you will be liable to prosecution.
"We appreciate your support in helping us to help others with your donations of furniture and household items."
More details on the restrictions surrounding collections and deliveries, items that can be accepted as donations, as well as how people can get a referral, is also available on the website at http://glossopdalefurnitureproject.co.uk/.
