Leaving bags of items outside a charity shop when it is closed…this is not a donation.
A very high percentage of items left outside closed charity shops do not end up on the shop floor…they get rained on…stolen…or used as doggie toilets…very rarely do they end up benefiting the charity they were meant for…in fact it can actually end up costing us money to dispose of them correctly.
St Mary’s Hospice have tried to provide as many options as possible to make donating goods easier and more convenient.
You can take your donation to work with you if your company has a St Mary’s Hospice donation station.
You can call up and book a van and driver to pick your donation up…this could be anything from one bag to ten, twenty bags…or more.
You can call in to any of our shops during opening hours and drop your donation off in person.
Call Trish to book a collection or request a donation station for your company on 07541359881.
