In Memory of David Shales

David Shales passed away on June 10th 2011.

David volunteered at Sofa during the Autumn of 2010. Unable to lift heavy items he enjoyed dusting and mopping, and also went out on the van a few times to collect donated furniture and carry light items, which he really enjoyed.

David had a lovely sense of humour and a real twinkle in his eye.

His sister-in-law described Sofa as being one of David's best experiences and said that his family felt that Sofa did more for him than anywhere else.

We have all been touched by David's parents' decision to ask that donations be made to Sofa in his memory, and are glad to know that David enjoyed and benefited from the time he spent with us.

We have received £400 in total, which will go a long way towards supporting volunteers like David who work with us all the time.
