St Joseph's Furniture Market is open on Saturday mornings from 9.00-12.30. Latest news and updates can be found on our Facebook page.
The Furniture Market was closed for only a few weeks during lockdown and is now operating as normal. For more than a year helpers have worked hard selling items via eBay. As a result, the magnificent sum of £8,000 was raised in this way.

We give regular support to mainly local charities and charities operating in the local area. These include:
Alzheimers Society, Aspire, Bone Cancer Research Trust, British Red Cross, Buckinghamshire Mind, Bucks Vision, Chalfont St Giles Youth Centre, Chalfont St Peter Community Centre, Chalfont St Peter Youth Centre, Citizens Advice, Connection Support Padstones, Guide Dogs, Hearing Dogs for the Deaf, Helen Douglas House, Julius Little Foundation, Leonard Cheshire Disability, MacMillan Cancer Support, Magdi Yacoub Institute, MS Centre Wendover, Myeloma UK, Rennie Grove Hospice Care,Samaritans Amersham, SBASCH, Scanappeal, Sebastian’s Action Trust, Sense, SHOC, Sign Health, Slough Refugee Support, Slough Talking Newspapers, Stroke Association, Thames Hospice Care, Victim Support.
