We always need good quality clothing, handbags, shoes, books, bric-a-brac and jewellery, but bigger items are also in demand. Donations of toys and nursery equipment, good quality furniture and small electrical goods are very welcome.
Whether you are looking for a bargain or want to make some room at home, here’s what we are always looking for:
- good quality clothing and shoes
- children’s clothes, toys and games
- books and multimedia like DVDs, CDs and vinyl
- accessories, non-pierced jewellery, belts, handbags
- bric-a-brac, crockery, glassware, bakeware, household linen and ornaments
- unwanted gifts
Our Brian House shops are part of the Trinity Hospice shops chain, with branches across the Fylde Coast. We benefit greatly from that – especially in terms of stock donation, because it means we always have some super bargain buys, with stock changing regularly. Call in to one of our stores – you’ll find a warm welcome.
Having a big clear out? If you drive to the Trinity Hospice Donation Centre on Talbot Road, Blackpool, our staff and volunteers will help you unload, but if you can’t get to one of our shops or a donation station at the hospice, give us a bell. Very often we can collect bulky items from your door, so call us on 01253 395822.
Our stock comes from many sources. Some is donated directly to our shops, or collected from occasional door to door bag drops. Schools and businesses also have ‘donation stations’ across the community.
Please remember, all donations must be clean and of saleable quality. If you wouldn’t buy it then we probably won’t be able to sell it! We can take old clothes or textiles that are clean but no longer useable, because we sell them to textile merchants, but please don’t give broken or incomplete items. The better the quality, the more money we can raise from their sale.
