Donate stuff

If you would like to donate items, please take a look at our top tips for donating below.

The items we pass on to families are a gift, given with love, from one family to another. Please bear this in mind when you are preparing your donations and only donate items you would be happy to pass on to a family member or friend – so no stained, worn out or broken items please.

You can find your nearest donation hub below. Thank you so much for your support.

Please note that our opening times vary over the summer. You can see our summer opening times under the hub information below. 

We are trialling a paid collection service to make it easier for people to get kit to us. If you would like a collection, our partners at Shift can arrange this for you for a fee. All bookings will be handled by shift. To book please call 0117 952 1111 or email thebusinessteam@shift.online.

Cancellation 48hrs before collection, otherwise will forfeit the cost for a failed collection. A reminder email will be sent to donors.
