Sofa, so ingenious!

2 runners ran to help an isolated older person in Bromley.

Our task on a sunny Wednesday lunchtime was to move a sofa and make some room so Ms S could have a hospital bed installed. There wasn't space to move the sofa out of the room, so we settled for relocating the sofa and shifting a table into the bedroom - except there was no space to get the table out either.

Thankfully, ingenious Ian came prepared with some pliers so we could take the table legs off - bingo! Job done. Hopefully our work will make life a little easier for Ms S when she comes out of hospital.
