Phased Reopening

We are currently preparing for a phased reopening of our Bolton Hospice Charity Shops, please see our risk assessments here.

Donating to Our Shops

Did you know that if you are a UK tax payer, we can claim an extra 25% back from the government on your donations?!

Sign up as a Gift Aid donor and each time you donate any clothing or goods, we can generate an extra 25% more income once they sell! To become a Gift Aid donor, ask in any of our charity shops or speak to our collection team and someone will be more than happy to help! 

Call to arrange your free home collection on 01204 663063 - please leave a voicemail and we will call you back if we are unable to answer!

We are always in need of good quality donations in all of our shops - clothing, home & kitchenware, jewellery, bric-a-brac, childrens' toys, nursery & baby items, shoes, bags, DVDs, CDs, books, furniture, electricals and fitness & leisure equipment. So please remember us when you are having a clear out by donating your unwanted items!

To donate your unwanted items you can:

  • Take items to one of our charity shops during opening hours.
  • Arrange a collection by contacting us by email or on 01204 663 063.
  • Download the Gone for Good app, take a picture of your unwanted goods, choose Bolton Hospice and we'll arrange a collection.

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.
