Have something you want to donate?
We need your donations!
However, we can't just accept anything & everything, so please follow the general guidelines below to see whether your item fits into the necessary criteria.
Fabrics and fillers
Anything with fabric or fillers including mattresses, sofas, armchairs, chairs with padded seats, bed heads etc., MUST HAVE A FIRE LABEL.
This is a legal requirement, we cannot give away any item that does not have a fire label. The only exception to this is if an item is classed as an antique.
Condition of goods
All donated furniture must be in good, clean, reusable condition (unless previously agreed that we are going to upcycle or restore it).
We will not accept dirty and stained mattresses or sofas. If we discover that an item of furniture is not in good enough condition when we arrive to pick it up we will not collect it.
White goods and electrical appliances
We will receive white goods (fridge, freezers, washing machines, tumble dryers etc.) and small electrical appliances as long as they are in good working order.
All such items will be PAT tested before being given away.
Please do not use us as a rubbish disposal service. If we cannot use it, then it costs us to dispose of it.
Where are they going?
All donations are either gifted to people in need as and when the help is requested or sold (with the donor’s permission) to generate income in order to cover the running costs of the charity.
We really appreciate, and are so grateful, for donations of good quality, reusable, clean furniture. We are a not-for-profit charity and donations are a vital part of enabling us to help others in need.
