Donate items to our charity shops

Items donated to our charity shops help us raise more funds to continue our work. In particular, we welcome donations of clothing, shoes, bags, music, books, DVDs/Blu-Rays and bric-a-brac.

We’re always looking for donations of good quality furniture and electrical items. Whether it’s a few items or a full house, we are usually able to help by offering free collection. Use our store locator to see if you are within 20 miles of one of our shops. If you are, email us and we’ll guarantee to get back to you within 2 working days to arrange a pick-up.
