A vintage Ercol sofa is at or near the top of many a mid century modern fan’s furniture wish list. This one’s being sold by St Luke’s Cheshire Hospice*. It needs new cushion covers and one of its legs is slightly damaged, but its webbing looks to be in great nick… and with a starting bid of £49.99, it’s still a bargain! It’s offered as a “collection only” item from their warehouse in Winsford, Cheshire.

*St Luke’s Cheshire Hospice provides palliative and specialist palliative care to those adult patients with life threatening or life limiting disease. The emphasis of care is on the promotion of dignity and quality of life for patients, and support for family and friends during and after the illness. Care may be as an outpatient attending Hospice Day Care, Complementary Therapy Clinic or Lymphoedema Clinic or inpatient admitted for symptom control, health assessment or terminal care.

Last week we helped a charity to publicise a Miroslav Sasek matchbook that they we’re auctioning on eBay. Then we thought – why don’t we do this more often? And so we shall!

This is the first of a new feature where we highlight vintage goodies listed on eBay where 100% of the sale is given to charity.

*Strut in the Community offers respite care for children with special needs by organising After School Clubs, Youth Clubs, Playdays & Residential Holidays.
