Donating your items

Thank you for taking the time to see how you can donate your items to Isabel Hospice.

You can:

  • Take them to any of our shops during opening hours
  • Take them to our Head Office at 61 Bridge Road East, Welwyn Garden City, AL7 1JR (Monday - Friday, 9.00am- 4.45pm)

Retail Gift Aid

Did you know, every donation you make to us could be worth more at no extra cost to you. If you are a UK tax payer and you say ‘Yes’ to Gift Aid we can claim 25p for every £1 raised by selling the items you give to us under the Government’s Gift Aid scheme.

We would welcome the following donated items:

  • Clothes in any condition (even with missing buttons and broken zips as we still are able to make money from these items)
  • Footwear
  • Belts, bags and clothing accessories
  • Books, CDs, records, DVDs    
  • Sheets, curtains and other large cloth items
  • Toys & games
  • Antiques and collectibles
  • Jewellery
  • Bric-a-brac
  • Some furniture (for collection or as a donation to our Head Office) - see below
  • Many household items (but excluding the items listed below)

We also accept donations of scrap metal.
