This and a giant teddy will be raffled to help cover petrol costs for volunteers.
He said: “I started by adding a few friends of my Facebook page.
“We will have more than 20,000 members by Christmas
“The help people are giving is unreal we have never seen anything like it,these great people could very easy sell these items and there choosing to give them away free.
“I predict there will be 100,000 members in one year and most will be giving their unwanted items away.”
Joseph, of Richmond Road, explained items were stored above Aquamania in Blackburn and volunteers then delivered everything from food parcels to beds to people across Hyndburn, Rossendale. Blackburn and other areas covered by the BB postcodes.
