How to donate to Prospect Hospice

With our shops reopening on Monday 12 April we’ll also be able to accept donations of pre-loved goods.

Donations will be accepted at our shops on an appointment only basis. Please call ahead to the shop you would like to donate to and arrange a time for you to drop in your pre-loved items. For the contact details of all our shops, please click here.

While you wait to book your appointment we ask that you please do not leave donations outside of our shops as this could be classed as fly-tipping. These donations can not be sold to raise money for the hospice and we have to pay for these donations to be removed.
