Please note that you MUST register your donation delivery HERE in order to drop off your donations! The address will be sent to you once you register. Please also be aware that no deliveries will be unloaded before 10am or after 5pm, as the team needs to prepare for distributions. If you are volunteering with us, please come from 9am, and your donations will be processed later on in the day.
If possible, please aim to bring donations on a weekday as the weekends are our busiest time. However, we do appreciate that this does not fit into many people’s schedules so please do not let this put you off booking for a Saturday or Sunday!
If you have any questions regarding donations, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We also need volunteers! Please get in touch with email@example.com to come and help out, once you’ve filled in this form
