Our shops provide us with a much-needed source of regular income. They sell pre-owned clean and good quality clothing, bric-a-brac and books, and we recycle unwanted goods to raise funds. A selection of new wildlife-themed products, cards and gifts is also available in each shop. If you would like to donate items for resale then please check below for details.
FOR THE SHOPS
We are always in need of good quality, clean, and undamaged items of clothing, as well as books, DVDs, and bric-a-brac. You can drop items into any of our shops. Whilst we are always grateful for donations of goods for us to raise funds, sadly if we feel your items are in an unsaleable condition or we are not legally allowed to sell them then, unfortunately, your donation may be refused. We will have to pay to dispose of any unwanted items. This is at staff discretion.
Thinking of donating items: please click here to see some of the items that we are not able to accept for resale in our shops.
TO RAISE FUNDS
We partner with a recycling company for donated items that cannot be resold in our shops - e.g. torn/stained textiles or broken bric-a-brac, and old or broken gadgets. They can be handed in at any of our shops or at the Hospital site.
We can accept the items below which we recycle to raise funds:
Recycle your unwanted, surplus, damaged or unsold books and DVDs. We will benefit from funds raised in either the resale or in recycling.
Cut out undamaged stamps from used envelopes or send unused stamps. Once you have a collection, pop them in an envelope, apply the correct postage, and send to the following:
