Donate in person to your nearest shop

Inside a Cancer Research UK shop

Donate your unwanted clothing, accessories, and homeware by bagging them up and dropping them in to your nearest shop.

Due to the COVID-19 national lockdown our shops are closed and unable to accept donations.
Please do not leave donations outside of our shops as they could become damaged and a hazard to the community. Instead, please safely store them at home until our shops reopen.

Set up a donation point

Donation station

If you'd like to donate as a group or with your local community you can run a donation station for us.

It’s so easy and if you collect over 20 bags we'll come and pick them up for you. 

During the national lockdown, donation point and collection services are temporarily unavailable.
Please safely store any donations you have until our shops reopen.

What you can donate

Our chain of 600 shops are all really grateful for any of the below donations. They fly off our shelves and help us raise vital funds.

  • Men’s, women’s and children’s clothing
  • Accessories including shoes, belts, handbags and jewellery
  • Quality homeware - anything from cushions to crockery
  • Linens
  • Books, CDs, DVDs
  • Electricals and furniture (please check with your local shop before you donate these)

Unfortunately, there are a few things that we can't sell - white goods such as washing machines and fridges and damaged or broken toys. 

Please contact your nearest shop if you're not sure if we can accept your donation and they will be happy to help.

There are lots of different ways you can support our shops, from donating your quality unwanted clothing, homeware and time by volunteering with us. Right now, volunteers in our shops are beating cancer sooner. Join them by completing our online application form so you can find your dream role and help beat cancer today.
