Donate Furniture

For larger furniture items, we offer a FREE and friendly local collection service in Stratford-upon-Avon and the local area.

The Shakespeare Hospice - Donate Furniture

Donate in store or use our free collection service

We are always grateful for good quality furniture donations to sell at our Furniture and Homeware Store. The sales of these donations support vital funding for our local community services.

How it works

  1. Fill out the furniture donation form on this page, which can be completed on a PC, tablet or phone. 
  2. Our team will review your details to ensure it meets our criteria* and will be in touch to organise a convenient date and time to collect the items from you.
  3. On the day before the arranged collection our driver team will give you a call and provide you with a two-hour time slot.

* Sometimes our staff may refuse to collect or receive an item if they feel that it doesn’t match the description that has been provided to us or it is not in good condition. Items that we cannot sell cost us money to dispose of - money that we would rather spend supporting our patients.
