Surplus stock can end up cluttering your company’s storage space or even dumped in landfill – but donating gifts in kind, anything from office equipment and cleaning supplies to toys or old mobile phones is an easy and effective way to support us.

We welcome any items in ‘as new’ condition. These can be sold in our charity shops or recycled through our comprehensive recycling scheme. Please deliver directly to our charity shops, details are below.

Gifting us any surplus or unwanted items that you may have is a positive and environmentally friendly option, rather than disposing of them as waste and it is a great way to prove your green credentials and commitment to CSR whilst supporting a worthy cause.

We currently have 2 charity shops:

  • 147 Eastney Road, Milton, Portsmouth PO4 8DZ
  • 65 High Street, West End, Southampton SO32 3DS

You can support our shops by volunteering or by donating good quality items for sale directly to the shops. In particular, we need:

  • Ladies Clothing (especially evening wear!)
  • Household goods and ornaments
  • Bridal gowns and bridesmaid dresses
  • Books and CDs & DVDs
  • Games and puzzles
  • Children’s clothing & toys

Our shops can sell electrical items; however we cannot accept TVs or any safety items for example children’s car seats, roller blades or crash helmets.
