Thank You for looking to donate goods to St Wilfrid’s Hospice!

Our Donation centre and and many shops currently open can only accept limited donations at this time. We also continue to trade online with ebay.

The safety of our staff, volunteers and local community is our priority and we are open with a revised operation in order to stay as safe as possible. In the meantime, please remember St Wilfrid’s Hospice as you tidy and sort in your homes & gardens.

We welcome good quality, clean donations of clothes, accessories, books, toys, home furnishing & homeware items. We also welcome furniture in good condition, subject to relevant fire labels.

Please help us and be ruthless as you sort your items for re-use.

All donations must be in re-sellable condition. Donated items not fit for sale will impact on future safe working routines and cost vital hospice funds to dispose of.

We do not accept donations of anything broken, incomplete or dirty, baby & nursery goods, white goods & electrical items, knives & weapons, pillows, duvets and upholstered furniture without correct fire labelling.


Clean clothing and accessories

China, glass & kitchenware

Books, CDs & DVDs

Retro & collectable items

Pictures & mirrors

Toys & games


Furniture, homewares and soft furnishings


Thank you for your support and stay safe!

When we receive donations of clothing and fabrics that we cannot sell in our shops, we always try and dispose of them in the most cost effective and environmentally friendly way. It is often possible to recycle these goods and still generate a small income.

Last year alone nearly 120,000 kilos of textile waste was recycled, raising around £45,000!

Unfortunately there are a few items that we cannot sell in our shops and that would cost us money to dispose of. We cannot accept any of the following;


 Anything broken, dirty, incomplete or unsafe

White goods, computers & gas appliances

Safety equipment including child car seats, helmets & nursery equipment

Firearms, knives & weapons

Toys which are handmade

Pillows & duvets

Upholstered furniture without the correct fire labelling
