Shop Gift Aid Scheme
Did you know that if you are a UK tax payer, Age UK East Sussex can increase the value of the goods you donate to our shops by 25%, through the Gift Aid scheme. Once you have completed one of our Gift Aid forms, you will be given a unique donor number. If you bring in your number each time you donate to our shops, we will be able to make your donations go even further. When your items are sold, we'll let you know how much you've helped us raise and confirm that you're happy for us to treat the money as a Gift Aid donation.
Volunteer at one of our shops
Our shops rely on volunteers to help with the day to day running, from sorting and pricing donated good, stocking the shop floor and working on the till. To find out more about local shop volunteering opportunities, either call into your nearest shop or find out more on our volunteer web page.
