Donate furniture to Helen & Douglas House | Free collection

Donate furniture to Helen & Douglas House | Free collection

Looking to donate your furniture to charity? We’ll collect it for free.

Turn your clutter into treasure at our charity shops! Each item you donate can make a huge difference to the lives of local terminally ill children and their families.

To book your FREE furniture collection please call the retail office on 01865 796772 or email warehouse@helenanddouglas.org.uk to arrange a furniture collection.

Will you help us to help people facing every parent’s worst nightmare?

As a charity, our shops provide 20% of the £3 million income we need each year to keep providing this invaluable support to families facing the unimaginable prospect of losing a child. By donating your unwanted things, you can help us continue to provide the love, care and expertise our families depend on.

What furniture can you donate?

We will arrange free collection of your furniture. We just ask that it’s in saleable condition. You can donate:

  • Sofas
  • Chairs
  • Tables
  • Wardrobes
  • Chests of drawers
  • Garden furniture
  • Beds and bedroom furniture

Free collection

We’ll arrange a free collection to make your donation as simple as possible.

Before booking your collection

If you’re donating an upholstered item to us, please check that it has a label saying it meets UK safety standards. Mattresses and upholstered bed bases must be in good clean condition with no rips, tears or stains, and must have a fire label sewn in, which refers to BS7177. Toys and electricals must have the CE mark for safety.

Make your donation go further

If you’re a UK taxpayer, you can make your donation go further by filling in a Gift Aid declaration form when you donate things to us. It couldn’t be easier and costs you nothing, but it means we can claim back 25p in tax from every £1 your donation brings in. That adds up to a big difference.
