About our shops
Our shops raise vital income that enables us to support local older people in Cheshire.
We currently have six charity shops in Cheshire, selling a variety of pre-loved items including clothes, books, toys and collectables. We also have a furniture shop in Ellesmere Port.
Our shops rely on donations. We are always happy to receive good quality, clean, reusable items to our shops during shop opening hours.
Don't forget - if you are a UK tax payer and you gift aid your donations, we can claim an extra 25% back at no extra cost to you. This means that for every £1 we make from selling your items, we will get an extra 25p through Gift Aid! So next time you drop off your donations, ask about Gift Aid!
For questions about donations to our shops, please call: 07717 661576.
Age UK Cheshire Stock Collection
We Come To You!
A key aspect of our charity delivery is our retail service and we are always grateful for your kind donations. If you wish to donate larger goods and furniture but are unable to drop to one of our shops across Cheshire, we can come to you!
Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with details and images of your donation. Alternatively, you can call us on 07717 661576 to organise the collection. Our friendly team will then liaise with you to arrange collection by one of our trusted van drivers.
Please be aware: donations of sofas, beds and other similar goods require a fire label attached to the item in order for us to sell these.
**It’s not just furniture: we also collect donations of clothing of over 8 large bags from a single collection.**
