Donating Items

Our charity shops would cease to run without the generous donations of the people of Oldham. If you have anything to donate for re-sale, please drop it off at one of our shops. 

We try our very best to sell every donated item in our shops. Most of the items donated to us can be sold, and the rest we recycle

Nothing is wasted if you donate it!

We also gratefully accept donations of good quality furniture for re-sale in our retail outlets. We can collect the items free of charge at a pre-arranged, convenient time – contact us on 0161 633 0213

A list of all our shop locations can be found here.

Gift Aid

Sign up for Gift Aid when you bring in your goods and increase the value of your donation by approximately 25%.

If you are a UK tax payer, just complete a simple declaration when you make a donation and we can claim 25p back in tax at no cost to you - your tax code won’t be affected either - so for every £10 we make from your donations, we get £12.50.

Once your donation has been sold, you will receive a notification by post or by email (which saves us money) for you to confirm you want the money raised donated under the Gift Aid scheme. You only need to reply if you don’t want to donate the proceeds of the sale

 

Volunteering as a Shop Assistant

Our volunteers are a vital part of Age UK Oldham and we could not offer the range of services we do without their help. By volunteering as a shop assistant, you are helping us generate the funds to support and enrich older people's lives.
