ELY community group SOFA has said it is "desperate" for volunteers to contribute to the project.

The Lynn Road-based organisation reclaims quality furniture and passes it on at minimal cost to members of the community, but the group is struggling because of a lack of staff.

Project manager Sherry Halls said: "We need people who can lift - they could come in on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday or help out in the shop on Saturdays."

She said the group offers flexible working hours and any working arrangement would be compatible with the school run.

She said SOFA now has a supplier that is able to provide white goods, such as refrigerators and freezers, at an affordable price.
