Why donate items to us?

We simply couldn't do what we do without the generous donations we receive in our shops. Sales from your unwanted items go towards funding for our vital care and community services. Furthermore, donating your unwanted items to our shops helps reduce waste that ends up in landfill, thus protecting the environment. In 2019, 339,000 tonnes of textiles alone were kept out of landfill because of UK charity retail.

You can take your donations to any of our shops during their opening hours. We also run a Donation Station at our Avenue Farm Furniture & Homeware Store, allowing you to quickly drop off all of your donations in one go.

We also accept Gift Aid on all retail donations that we receive through our shops.

Items we can and cannot accept

FREE furniture collection

For larger furniture items, we offer a friendly FREE local collection service across South Warwickshire.
