A CONSTRUCTION company has saved two Wisbech organisations a total of �15,000 - simply by donating all its unwanted furniture.
Morgan Ashurst gave a large load of spare tables, chairs, desks, shelving units and filing cabinets to the Ferry Project.
Most of the items will be used to kit out Octavia View, the charity's new multi-purpose hostel for the homeless in Wisbech.
Volunteers will also share some of the furniture with Hope Social Enterprises - a non-profit making organisation which trains unemployed people to help them get back into work.
