and around 50 retail shops, spread across England and Wales.

Donate & gift aid
We are always in need of high quality donations, we particularly welcome donations of:
- DVDs and Blu-rays
When you donate to a Shaw Trust fundraising shop, you can choose to apply Gift Aid to your donation. That means we can claim an extra 25% on the money we raise from your donation. As a thank you, we’ll give you a Shaw Trust loyalty card
. This entitles you to 20% off the purchase of any donated goods every time you shop with us. You can ask in one of our charity shops for details.
Free national furniture collection service
We’re always looking for good quality furniture and electrical items to sell in our shops. Whether it’s a few things or a house full we’ll usually be able to help. If you believe you could provide some goods to sell in our shops and help raise funds to transform lives, then simply go to our store locator and if you have one of our shops within 20 miles of where you live, e-mail us and we’ll guarantee to get back to you within 2 working days to arrange a pick-up.
For collections in London area, we are piloting a new online booking service at: www.shaw-trust.org.uk/London-goods-collection. Collection slots are available throughout the week, including weekends and evenings.
In partnership with GoneForGood charity vans, we wish to make it easy to our supporters to donate pre-loved items to one of our participating stores - Walworth, Egham and Stoke Newington.
