We are very grateful for any quality donations you give to the Hospice shops. Our shops rely on your good quality donated items and we are particularly looking for:-
- Ladies, men’s and children’s clothes, shoes and accessories
- Ornaments, china and glassware in good clean condition
- Modern paperback books
- Vintage and retro items
- CDs and DVDs
- Unwanted gifts
- Small electrical appliances
- Furniture with fire labels if applicable
Unfortunately there are certain items we are unable to accept due to Health and Safety regulations or lack of public demand, these are:-
- Videos and cassettes
- Duvets and Pillows
- Safety helmets
- Child car seats
- Toys without a CE label
- Gas appliances
- Sharp knives and weapons
- White electrical goods
- Upholstered furniture without a fire label or no longer in a clean sellable condition
Taking time to sort your donations can help us generate more money for the Hospice. All donated stock will be used to the best advantage for Oakhaven and may be sold, recycled or disposed of as appropriate. This is based on our principle of getting best value for money for every kind donation.
Every penny raised by the Hospice shops is used to fund the specialist care and support to our patients and their families when they meed it most.
Alternatively you can give the gift of time, volunteers play a vital role in the success of our shops and we are always looking for additional help. If you are interested please see our becoming a volunteer section.
