The St Richard’s Hospice donation station at the charity’s Warehouse in Leigh Sinton will be open for donations on Tuesdays only from 17th November from 10am to 3pm or until the container is full.
In particular, we’re calling for donations of cosy autumn/winter clothing and accessories in good condition, and household items. Christmas items from sparkly jumpers to festive decorations will be especially well-received.
We will do our best to accept your donations, but once the container is full you will need to return the following week.
Please don’t make any unnecessary extra journeys to donate, but if you are passing by on the way to work, school or to collect essential items then we would love to see you. There will be social distancing measures in place and please follow all the guidelines, including wearing a face covering, when you are making your donation delivery.
We’re kindly asking everyone to make sure the items they donate are clean, undamaged, complete, and suitable for resale to raise funds for our hospice care.
To meet infection control guidelines donors will be asked to place items directly into a container or hospice van where they can remain for 48 hours before handling.
There will be signage in place directing you to the donation point.
All donations must be in a sealed bag (e.g. tied at the top), or a box – ideally with a lid to enable stacking.
Please ensure boxes of donations are of a manageable size, and weigh no more than 8kg.
If you are donating individual items, please make sure they are appropriately wrapped and not loose.
If you gift aid goods, please label with your gift aid number and attach to your donations.
The quality of our care depends on the quality of your donations. For advice on making a donation, and examples of what we can and can’t accept, see our Quality Donation Guide.
We can collect donations of furniture, but not other items at this time. Please do not bring furniture to our shops or donation stations. If you wish to have an item of furniture collected, please follow this link to fill out our online form. Thank you.
Our warehouse supports the hospice charity shops by sorting items ready for purchase at our many stores throughout Worcestershire.
