CHARITIES, schools or not-for-profit groups in need of office furniture could find help is at hand from Croydon Council.
The authority is planning to get rid of a wide range of furniture when it moves from its Taberner House headquarters into its new home at Bernard Weatherill House, in Fell Road, during September and October.
To ensure as many pieces as possible can be reused, the council is urging groups to come forward and make a claim for the type of items they are interested in.
The furniture, which is free of charge, must be used within the borough and not be resold. Any pieces that are not suitable for reuse will be recycled.
Interested organisations should visit www.croydon.gov.uk/furniture and complete the online request form by Friday, August 23.
An inventory and a full list of terms and conditions can also be viewed online.
Councillor Sara Bashford, cabinet member for corporate and voluntary services, said: "We want to make sure that all the furniture in Taberner House can be reused, and if it can't, that it is recycled.
"This is a great opportunity for charities and schools to pick up furniture free of charge, and we urge them to come forward to make their claim."
