Donations Update

The warehouse will be open Monday - Thursday from 9-4pm but remain closed on a Friday for the time being. There is no need to make an appointment.

We will not be accepting donations on Fridays and donations for starter packs will not be accepted in the Pantry.

Please only donate items that we can use in our packs, as we are unable to accept other items and it then costs us money to dispose of goods we cannot use.

Please note, we no longer accept duvets or pillows.

Please adhere to social distancing when dropping off goods and wear a face covering (unless exempt).

We look forward to seeing you all!
