We are so appreciative of donations to our charity shops. The items kindly donated and sold in our shops enable us to raise money that directly funds the vital services our chairty provides for older people across Sheffield.

If you are wishing to donate please be advised that as we are expecting high volumes we will be accepting donations on Tuesday mornings from 10am to 1pm & Thursday afternoons from 12pm to 3pm.

      To avoid disappointment, we recommend that you call the shop before going to donate items to check that they have space. This is simply because we are receiving large volumes of donations at the moment and have a limited amount of space to store them.
    • The phone number for our Bradway shop is: 0114 236 0884

Could you donate items to sell in our shops?
Whether they’re unwanted gifts, that dress you only wore once, or your loved and cared-for nick-nacks, please bring them to us to recycle for someone else’s use. We can even claim gift aid on your donation if you are a UK tax payer! Please see table below for donations we can and cannot accept. Please also view our table at the top of th epage to find ou when you can donate. 

Amount of donations and what we can & cannot accept:
We are so grateful for donations that help us raise money for our charity, however we can only accept a certain amount of donations, this is because we must wait 72 hours before opening any donated bags of items. Therefore, donations are limited to:  A maximum of 2 bags per person/family, per day. (bag sizes should be equivalent to: 2 black bin bags, 4 small shop carrier bags or 2 bags for life.)

Please do not leave donations outside our shop: Doing so puts our volunteers, staff, customers and the public at risk. We have even had people leave rubbish and recycling outside our shop.

This means we have to use our limited time and resources to dispose of these at a time when safety must come first. We appreciate donations so much, but it is so important to donate in a safe and kind way by following our simple donation rules.
