One of the latest recruits to a Sleaford furniture recycling charity is becoming an internet star with his TV shopping channel style sales patter to attract more entries in a competition to win a leather sofa.
Sleaford and District Furniture Recycling Project trustee Romell Yearwood has teamed up with the charity’s operations manager on their Facebook page to launch the competition by posting a QVC-style video with lots of the familiar banter.
Video presenter Romell, from Birthorpe, is the newest trustee at the charity. He runs his own Facebook advertising and video marketing consultancy.
A spokesman for the trustees said: “We decided to do the ‘win a sofa’ competition to raise awareness of our charity, helping people with furniture is what we do.
“Not everyone is aware that we save lots of reusable items from being thrown away at the tip.
“Give us a call on 01529 307060.”
All you have to do to enter the prize draw is comment with a smiley emoji :-)
