Our charity shops are at the heart of our community and help us provide much needed funds so that the Hospice can continue to provide free end of life care to patients who are living with a life limiting illness.

Hospice of the Good Shepherd charity shops offer high-quality items for sale at reasonable prices. We are reliant upon donations of good quality furniture, clothing, bric -a-brac and electrical goods to ensure we can stock our shops. All money raised through the donations and sale of items into our shops support the vital end of life care delivered by our dedicated team at the Hospice.

  • Furniture such as sofas, chairs, beds, wardrobes, dining room furniture. (Before you complete our form to book a collection it would be helpful if you can check that all upholstered furniture has a fire label, otherwise we are unable to accept them.)

Once you have completed and submitted this form you’ll be contacted within 72 hours by one of our team to confirm your booking (If you are completing this form on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday, we will contact you on the next available working day). At this time we will discuss our health and safety guidelines with you. When our van driver comes to collect they will make the final decision on any donations.

CH1. CH2, CH3, CH4, CH5, CH63, CH64, CH65 and CH66.

Items we can not accept as donations

We love the things you bring but unfortunately can not resell some items listed due to different reasons such as safety, hygiene or legal. Therefore, we cannot accept them as donations due to the disposal cost.

Safety reasons We don’t sell items that may be dangerous to our staff, volunteers or customers. We also don’t sell safety equipment that we can’t guarantee is still effective.

Hygiene reasons We do not sell items that present a hygiene risk in their use or handling.

Legal reasons We do not sell items that are legally prohibited from sale. We also do not sell items that need a licence that is either inappropriate or too expensive.
