The National Council for the Blind of Ireland (NCBI) has partnered with Furniture Designs on a furniture disposal initiative for charity.

When customers wish to dispose of their old furniture for any reason, NCBI and Furniture Designs will now begin collecting it for them free of charge.

The collected furniture will then be sold in the NCBI Charity Shops.

The money earned will be used to continue the NCBI’s work assisting people affected by sight loss all over Ireland.

NCBI has 97 charity shops around the country and 21 in Dublin.

NCBI is the national sight loss agency and not for profit charity. It provides services to over 8,000 people every year.

Their community based services include emotional support and counselling for those experiencing sight loss and their families, assistive technology advice and training, rehabilitation training including independent living skills, as well as a large print, audio and Braille library.

CEO of NCBI, Chris White said of the announcement: “We are delighted to partner with Furniture Designs on this new initiative. NCBI must raise €4 out of every €10 it spends on services and receiving great second hand stock for our charity shops will be a huge help to the organisation.”

Furniture Designs is a retailer that has operated in Ireland for nearly 40 years.

Manager in Furniture Designs, Stephen McCaffrey said: “We are glad to be able to help a charity like NCBI who work with people with sight loss in our local community. This is a simple but effective way we can help our customers and benefit a great charity like the NCBI. Giving is not just about making a donation; it’s about making a difference.”
