Hammersmith business Helix Property Advisors has supported its local branch of Mencap by donating three colourful sofas for its users to enjoy.

The company approached HammersmithLondon BID, which recently won another term serving the town centre, to see if it knew of any local organisation which would want the three large round lobby sofas, formally situated in the atrium of The Ark building on Talgarth Road .

The BID used its town friendly Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme and learned Hammersmith and Fulham (HF) Mencap would be grateful for the giant 6ft sofas.
