Donating food and clothes- (Please note that we cannot collect donations)

We are open Tuesdays and Fridays between 10am 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 charities who help and support people moving into properties or will be gratefully received by your local charity shop.

We kindly ask that you do not leave donations outside the door of the Beacon project if we are closed.
