How to donate your items 

You can drop off donations at any of our shops but only during shop opening hours – please do not leave them in the shop doorways.

We do offer a free collection service for donations of furniture - and if you have any home accessories, bags of clothing or small electrical items we can collect these items too. 

If you have furniture or larger items you’d like to donate, we’re happy to collect free of charge. Simply email [email protected] or call 01273 721188 to arrange a pickup.

Gift Aid on Donated Goods

Gift Aid is a scheme enabling Martlets to reclaim tax on a donation made by a UK taxpayer. This means that, if you pay UK tax and agree to Martlets claiming Gift Aid on your donation, the Government will give us 25p on top of every £1 you give to us and it does not cost you a penny.

Electrical Items

We accept most working electrical items. Once items have been donated they are tested before being sold in our shops.

Please call us to check we can accept your electrical goods.
