Clean single mattress. Free.....

Give, Lend & Borrow in Ufford

I have a clean single mattress I don't need and would love someone to come and take it. It's in good order so it would be a shame to ditch it.

Hi Polly, Thank you for giving the mattress to my friends. They are delighted with it and are very grateful. Their uncle has to go to work at 5.30am but at least now he will be able to get a proper sleep beforehand... Many thanks, Cordelia
