Help us to continue to care by donating to our Charity Shops
We all hang on to things that we know we will never wear again, read again or use again. We would love to help you declutter and in turn you will not only be helping us to continue to provide our specialist care, you will be a part of some amazing statistics by supporting sustainable shopping in charity shops.
- Charity Shops across the UK helped raise £331m in 2018/2019
- 339,000 tonnes of textiles avoided ending up in landfill in 2018/19
- Councils have saved at least 31m by diverting items from landfill
- Signing up to Gift Aid increases the value of your donation by 25%
