Charity Shops & Warehouse Update
We are busy making plans to safely reopen our shops, warehouse and collection service. Hopefully you have been doing lots of spring cleaning and have bags of charity shop donations as we are in desperate need of new stock!
Once the warehouse reopens we will only be able to accept donations on Monday or Thursday each week as we will be quarantining newly-donated items for 72 hours before staff handle them. The same arrangements will apply for donations at each of our charity shops once they are open again. Please do not leave donations outside the shops at any time as they may be stolen or damaged by the weather, making them unsellable.
Please make sure all donated items are sellable: that toys are in full working order, games contain all the pieces, and that all clothes are clean and stain-free. It costs the charity money to dispose of things which cannot be sold.
Unfortunately, we are currently unable to accept donations of CDs, books, videos and DVDs due to the huge volume of these items that we have received recently.
Please be aware that we have temporary reduced opening hours of 10am – 3pm.
