We welcome donations of good quality items at all our shops and we can arrange collection if necessary. However there are a number of items we can't accept for legal and health & safety reasons. If you would like to find out more contact us.

Please note we can only accept limited donations at this time and all must be delivered to the back of the premises at whichever shop you choose to donate to. Please call ahead on the numbers above to inform us that you wish to donate goods. Thank You.

Retail Gift Aid

If you pay UK Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax your donations to our charity shops could be worth even more if you agree to complete a Retail Gift Aid Form when you donate your items.  By completing this you will be agreeing to allow St Benedict's Hospice to act as an agent to sell your goods on your behalf and when the items are sold we will then be able to claim Gift Aid on the net proceeds.  This means that for every £10 we raise from the sale of your items we will actually receive £12.50, all at no cost to yourself.  To find out more contact us or ask in the shops when you donate your goods.

Contact our Retail Area Manager: if you have any further questions.
