Support our local charity shops

By selling your donated clothes and other treasures, we're able to fund children’s mental health workers, campaigns to get families out of poverty, support groups for young people affected by substance use and more.

Donate your items

From books to bags, shoes to silverwear, your pre-loved items help us be there for young people who need us most.

You can donate direct to our shops, or if you are a company donating in bulk, please contact us through this form.

Ways to donate 

Donating unwanted items to your local shop couldn’t be easier. Just drop in when we're open and we'll take them off your hands.

Although your pre-loved goods donations are much-needed, please don’t leave them outside when we’re closed.

If you would like to increase the value of your donations by 25% at no extra cost to you, print these Gift Aid labels, fill in your details and attach them to your bags and boxes. Thank you!
