How to donate

You can drop off goods at our donation bay at the side gate to the Shop from 10:30am to 11:30am.

Please don’t leave items outside the Shop when we’re closed.

We also offer a limited collection service in the local area. Please contact the Shop on 01392 271652 for details.

As well as sales in the Shop, we can raise vital funds by selling old clothes and shoes for recycling. If you have clean clothing that you thought was too worn out for us to sell, just label the bag as rag.

Please Gift Aid your donated items if you can. As a UK taxpayer you can help us claim an extra 25 pence from Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs for every £1 you help to raise. Simply sign up for Gift Aid when you take your items to our Shop. Please ask a member of our team for details when you arrive.
