What donations do we accept?

We need quality donated items all year round to enable our shops to have the best stock to sell, to generate vital revenue for our free hospice care.

We accept quality pre-loved women’s, men’s, and children’s clothing, books, bric-a-brac, games and puzzles, children’s toys, handbags, accessories, shoes, linen, electrical items (we PAT test all our electrical items), CDS, DVDs, vinyl and furniture.

There are some items we cannot accept for various reasons. These include:

Children’s toys without the ‘CE’ mark on them, soiled or dirty clothing, dirty bedding or linen, items of food or drink, including alcohol, beauty products such as body lotions or soaps, age-restricted items such as some knives, fireworks, cigarettes, and anything to do with gambling, real animal fur and fake designer items.

Retail Gift Aid

To help us raise even more money through our shops, you can sign up for Gift Aid at no extra cost to you. You can make a real difference to us by simply completing our Retail Gift Aid form.

RAG Donations

Sometimes we get items that are unsuitable for us to sell in the shops, and these items can be sold as RAG for a small amount. If you’re wanting to donate some items for us to send for RAG, please help us by separating them and writing RAG on the bag.
