Shop Donations

St Elizabeth's rely on generous donations to keep the Charity Shops going. Anything you would like to donate can be dropped off at any of our 9 branches, during opening hours.

While we are grateful for your donations, unfortunately we cannot accept the following items:

  • Skateboards, skates, slides and swings
  • Child safety seats, prams, pushchairs, cots and carry cots, cot mattresses, bumpers or baby slings
  • Children’s clothing with a drawstring on the neck or hood
  • Toys which are unsafe (i.e with sharp edges or pieces)
  • Cigarettes, tobacco products or ash trays
  • Real fur goods
  • Chemical products, paint or varnishes
  • Spectacles
  • Gas and/or oil appliances, or batteries
  • Razors, broken or chipped glass or china, corkscrews, scissors or weapons
  • Crash helmets, cycle helmets, riding hats, protective clothing or equipment of any kind
  • Exercise equipment without the manufacturer’s instructions
  • Counterfeit items including DVDs and designer goods
  • DVDs or videos without a British Board of Film Classification (BBFC)
  • Items marked as ‘not for resale’
  • Pillows, duvets and eiderdowns
  • Earrings for pierced ears

Please ensure that all soft furnishings have fire labels attached. St Elizabeth’s cannot sell furnishings without them.

While we cannot accept duvets and mattresses, our suggestion is to consider donating these items to your nearest animal charity.

Our Deliveries and Collections Service is operating at a limited capacity at the moment so if you have arranged for a collection, it would be very helpful if you had someone able to facilitate your end to support with the moving of the item(s).

If you are unsure about any items you would like to donate, or would like to arrange for a collection/delivery, please contact our Fundraising team on 01279 844355. Alternatively, please pop into your local branch for further information, or contact our Retail Operations Manager Sharon Colbourne at


We ask for your patience and cooperation while we process the backlog of donations received while we have been closed, and since we have reopened. To avoid being turned away, please make every effort to phone your local branch ahead of your visit when you are dropping off a donation. Details for your local branch can be found here!
