How you can help

If you have had a clear-out recently and are preparing to drop off your items to the charity shop, here are a few ways you can help us in advance of donating.

  • - Before donating large items of furniture, please email images to and we will confirm if we have the capacity to accept the items (changes have been made to our storage area, reducing our capacity to store large items).
  • - Please put any clothing and other fabrics through the washing machine
  • - Please wipe down any hard surfaces
  • - Please only donate items that can be sold – if you think that someone you know would buy it, then we would love to receive it!
  • - If you have a large amount of items to donate, please consider staggering your donations to help us with our storage capacity.
  • - Please do not leave donations outside when we are closed. This frequently results in your kindly donated goods being stolen or damaged, meaning they cannot be sold to raise funds for Durrell. The disposal of damaged items also costs the charity money.
