Support your local hospice by donating and shopping with us

Last year our shops raised almost £2million to to help fund our care

As lockdown eases, we are busy re-opening our shops in phases and we’re looking forward to welcoming you back. To see if your local shop is open, click here.

We’re also pleased to say that, from Monday 3 August, we’ll once again be able to accept donations of pre-loved goods from our supporters. Furniture collections will also resume later the same week but this will be via appointment only. To find out more our donation stations and booking your slot for a furniture collection, click here.

Thank you to everyone that’s supported the hospice in our shops over the last few weeks, either by donating or shopping with us. We’ve been overwhelmed by your support and and our team is now busy sorting through the thousands of items we’ve been given and getting these out to our shops to sell.

To give all of our customers peace of mind at this time, in line with government safety guidelines, all items donated will be stored for 72 hours before we sort them and get these out to our shops.

About our shops

Prospect Hospice has 18 charity shops in and around the Swindon, Marlborough and north Wiltshire area. Between them the shops raise a significant proportion of our income – around a quarter of the total amount needed to run the hospice.

This vital source of funding is dependent on the continued support of our community, including the volunteers who help out in our shops and distribution centre, and the people who donate unwanted items for us to sell.

Our retail operation is run by an enthusiastic team of experienced managers and volunteers. We are always looking for volunteers to carry out various roles:

  • Shop assistants
  • Distribution centre processors (at our centre in Wroughton)
  • Van drivers
  • PAT testers (to help check donated electrical items)

If you’d like to join one of our friendly retail team, you can find more about the roles available below or contact our voluntary services team on 01793 813355, or email volunteering@prospect-hospice.net.
