Shops & Gifting
Our Charity Shops make an important contribution to our work both in terms of awareness and raising well needed funds to care for the animals we rescue. If you can Donate Goods for our shops that would be very much appreciated. Please also check out our Volunteer Opportunities if you are interested in helping us in the shops.
We ask you to only deliver carrier bags and not bin bags as our storage facilities are limited. At all our shops we take:
- Clothing (Adult)
- Curtains, Cushions and Covers
- Good Condition small Furniture
- Kitchen Items & Gadgets
- Large Pictures
- Toys and Puzzles (500 or 1000)
- Jewellery & Watches
- Console Games and Records
- Full Bottles for our very popular bottle stall
- Good Quality Gifts for Raffles etc.
- Working Electricals
- Car Seats
- Cycle Helmets
- Small Picture Frames
- Computer Desks
- TV Stands
At our West Wittering shops we also take lager furniture such as wardrobes and dinning tables. If you have larger amounts of donations, please call us so we can arrange to get them stored well.
We ask you to be mindful of the condition of your donation as it is difficult for us to sell items with stains or breakage. It will cost the charity money to get rid of items if they don’t sell.
Something else to donate?
Call your local charity shop to check we can take it.
