I don't wish to be irreverent and I don't know the lady, so I will say nothing about the alleged ashes.

The chest of drawers was going to the tip, along with some other items. Why do they take in stuff they don't need or that is total rubbish and then have to cart it off to the tip?
How did they get the chest, complete with contents, yet don't know where it came from?

"The Project, which has been going for 20 years, distributes between 200 and 300 tonnes of furniture to 200 needy families every year."
Does the Birmingham Mail really believe that any family, poor or otherwise could possibly use one and a half tonnes (tons) of furniture?

Typical evening mail crap. Once I can pick a hole in a story it's enough to tell me that the whole thing is garbage.

Maybe it was a house clearance, so they take the good with the bad.

If it was a house clearance then they must have more information than just the certificate.
