Treasure trove

Ruislip Manor’s newest shop has brought a treasure trove of pre-loved furniture to the area with all sales supporting local vulnerable people.

The Furnish shop on Windmill Hill is less than two minutes from Ruislip Manor tube station and offers a large selection of pre-loved furniture.

All furniture has been donated – some donations go to the homes of people in need that have very little furniture and some goes for sale. All profits from sales are reinvested in services for vulnerable people.

Furnish is part of SBHG’s charity, Staying First. The shop is owned by Shepherds Bush Housing Group, part of its commercial portfolio, along with the flats above it.

Staying First director Pam Sedgwick said: “We are so pleased to be open in Ruislip Manor. The staff and I are really looking forward to becoming a part of the local community."

The Mayor of Hillingdon, Councillor John Hensley, opened the shop. He said: “I was aware of Shepherds Bush Housing Group providing sought after homes in Hillingdon. So what could be better than to have a charity shop supporting this and some of the furniture going into those homes. It’s a win-win and the community benefits.”

The opening cake was made by local business Honey Bee Cakes.
