Your support for our shops is what makes them so successful. Your generosity in donating quality items, shopping with us and giving your time as volunteers has allows us to achieve a high percentage of profitability in our shops ensuring that as much as possible goes to fund patient care. We have 24 charity shops across the region. Find out more.
When you’re having a clear out, please remember that we take a wide variety of good quality items as well as old clothes and other items for recycling. Read more about donating to our shops.
What's On at your local shop
If you’ve never visited your local shop before, please do pop in and see the great selection of quality items at bargain prices. Our shops often run special offers, themed days and other events. See our events calendar for what’s coming up near you.
Your time is one of the most precious gifts you can give. If you're interested in volunteering in our Retail Team, there are a variety of opportunities available. You might like to volunteer for half a day a week in one of our shops or volunteer as a van driver – collecting items to sell and delivering them round our shops. You might be an eBay expert and keen to join our team of volunteer listers – or you might have an area of expertise and could help us pinpoint items and specific details about them that would help us fetch the highest price on eBay. If you have some time to spare and enjoy meeting new people, we would love to hear from you.

When you donate goods for us to sell, our Retail Team check everything thoroughly and put certain items aside to sell in our eBay shop. Some items such as vintage cameras, clothes and china can fetch much more money on ebay than in our own shops. Likewise, collectable items such as toys, books, games and memorabilia reach a wider audience on ebay and command a higher price.
Every week our dedicated team of ebay volunteers list, pack and post hundreds of items. So your donations could be earmarked for ebay and contribute to our average weekly eBay income of between £2,000 to £2,500.
Our eBay stock changes on a daily basis so please check back regularly to ensure you don’t miss out on that special something. There are often hidden gems to be found in your donated items that raise unprecedented amounts as ebay enables shoppers to find very specific or unusual items.
