The Furniture Re-use Network (FRN) is helping people affected by the floods by supporting charitable reuse organisations to distribute furniture and electrical goods. From Hull to Doncaster, the FRN is helping those who are returning back to their flood wrecked homes by getting charities to donate useful items, such as beds, sofas and fridges. Chief executive Paul Smith said: We are working in conjunction with the Eternal Benefits charity and Hull City Council to distribute furniture to people out there. We are focusing on people based in the north at the moment who are returning to their homes and need vital goods. Some residents in Hull may receive chalet beds from Centre Parcs in Wiltshire. Smith said: Chalet beds have been distributed to charities. Centre Parcs is doing a big refurbishment project and there is a chance that these beds would have been sent to landfill. The FRN is helping the private sector to stop items that can be reused going to waste, and the private sector is then helping charities to help those in need. Demands for goods are also expected in the south when flood water levels have dipped and people start to return to their houses. We have groups in all the areas that have been affected by the floods and we are providing support for them, added Smith.
