Turning clutter into cash
We'd like to know what treasures are hiding in your wardrobe.
Clearing out the clutter helps support our work, just by giving us the best of what you no longer use.
Donations from you are the lifeline of our shops. We need your good quality, reusable items so we are able to provide palliative, long-term and end of life care to people young and old, across the UK.
Help make a difference today - clear out your cupboards, wardrobes, and garages and turn your unwanted items into care for others.
And don’t forget to Gift Aid your items to make them worth 25% more.

Items we can't sell, we can still use
Any garments or textiles that we can't sell in the shop we can to sell onto a third party. If you have items that you know are damaged or unsaleable we'll happily accept them. Just let us know when you're dropping it off.
Donations that are broken or dirty, or do not comply with trading standards, cannot be sold in our shops. We try wherever possible to recycle theses items, but often the items end up in the waste.
This costs us money. Please consider this when donating to us.
