Donating food and clothes


We are open Tuesdays, wednesday and Fridays between 10.30am and 2pm to accept donations. If it's quite a large quantity of donations it's always best for people to e-mail and let us know so we can make sure we have the space and volunteers on hand to deal with them and if possible to avoid 12-1pm which can be quite hetic during the lunch session.


Please note we do not accept brick-a brac/children's clothes, household items or double duvets, these will be more suitable for 'Framework' who help and support people moving into properties or will be gratefully received by your local charity shop.
