Where can I park?

Nettlebed Hospice is aware of the disruption that parking for the sales sometimes causes to our neighbours in Nettlebed village and seeks to minimise this by asking customers to please park sensibly and be considerate at all times. Drivers are requested not to park on grass verges, on the corners of road junctions or across the driveways of houses. Thank you.

Donated items are used in our sales and this is a great help to raise vital funds for our palliative care in South Oxfordshire.

Can I donate goods, too?

Of course! We accept items in good, resaleable condition. However, please note there are items we cannot accept which are listed further down.

You are welcome to drop in with your donated goods seven days a week between 9.30am and 3.30pm.

Items for our furniture department can only be donated on a Tuesday and Friday between 9.30am and 11.30am.

We regret that we're unable to accept goods on the day of a sale or the day before, so do drop your donations in a few days early.

Please note that occasionally the donation station is full to capacity – it's always best to call ahead. Contact 01491 641 384 ext. 273.

Do you need any volunteers?

Volunteers are always needed on weekday mornings to help within various departments of the Sue Ryder sales area to help sort and allocate donated goods.

If you can give just a few hours on a weekday morning, we would love to hear from you. If you would like to become a volunteer, please get in touch with our team at southoxfordshire.fundraising@sueryder.org.
