A LOCAL business has donated one of its sofas to the intensive care unit at Barnsley Hospital to help staff relax during their long shifts.

CC Interiors, on Sheffield Road, has donated the sofa to the unit’s new rest room after hearing the hospital needed furniture.

Cheryl Brown, the owner of the company, said: “Once we heard that Barnsley Hospital were looking for furniture for its new rest room, we knew we had to help out.

“We’re only a small business, but I think it’s incredibly important that everyone does their bit for our key workers, no matter how big or how small.

“ICU staff are working up to 15-hour shifts, so this sofa will hopefully be a big help for them when they need it.

“Most local businesses are struggling, including us. But it’s the least we could do, and I hope that more businesses come together and give as much as they can.”
