AnyVan and Preloved #MagicVanMoves

Our partner, Anyvan, has been bringing some happiness to the world with their #MagicVanMoves by connecting unwanted pianos from Freeloved to those who want to play. It's always great to see Freeloved items going to great causes, so we thought this story deserved a spot on the Preloved blog.
