Information about donations:

We are very grateful to all those who continue to donate to our shops, but due to the restrictions imposed on waste and our duty of care in ensuring that waste is removed safely, we ask you to please make sure that all your donations of non-clothing items are in good condition, not broken and meet with Trading Standards compliance.

We are also unable to accept any soft-furnishing donations which do not have the original Fire Safety label attached (see below) such as sofas, armchairs, mattresses etc. as we are unable to re-sell these items. 

Occasionally our shops may have to STOP donations temporarily due to high volume, limited space and short staffed, we do apologise for this inconvenience and will resume accepting as soon as reasonably possible.

  • Unfortunately due to low customer demand we are unable to accept DVDs and CDs at this current time. By accepting these items we would incur a cost to the hospice. Thank you for your co-operation and support.

If you would like to enquire further regarding what our shops are able to accept as donations please call 01204 663063.
