Donate goods to our shops
Our shops rely on your generous donations of good quality clothing and household items. It's easy to donate, knowing that your second-hand goods will help people in need in communities everywhere.
What to give
We welcome quality clothing, furniture and homeware donations. Different shops stock different things - take a look at your local shop's page to find out what they accept.
Drop off your items or call us
Simply drop your donations off during shop hours or call your local shop to arrange a collection.

Got a bunch of workmates keen to donate? To make it as easy as possible, you can order a 'donation station' box for your workplace or community organisation. People can drop their goods and clothing into it when it's convenient. When the box is full, call us to come and collect your donations.
