Looking to donate to charity and don’t know where to start? One of the easiest ways to support our vital work is to donate clothes, toys, books, furniture and more to be sold in our shops. Your good quality unwanted items make a huge difference to local children and young people who are life limited or life threatened – and with more and more people turning to charity shops to find a bargain, your donations are more important than ever!
Want to donate to Acorns? It couldn’t be easier! To donate clothes, toys and other unwanted goods, all you have to do is drop your items into your nearest Acorns charity shop. With over 40 Acorns shops across Birmingham and the wider West Midlands, you won’t have to travel too far to find one. And don’t forget to ask to Gift Aid your donated goods when you drop them off!
Donating unwanted goods to our charity shops is a great way to support your local children’s hospice. But did you know that it costs us time and money to dispose of items that are damaged? You can help us raise more by only donating your very best clothes, toys and other items. Ask yourself “would I sell this to a friend?”
To help you declutter and donate check out our handy guide below.
Men’s, ladies’ and children’s clothes, shoes and accessories
Children’s toys and nursery furniture
Household items, bric-a-brac, small electricals, china and pottery, fabrics
Books and media, including CDs and DVDs
We also have a number of charity furniture shops throughout the West Midlands, offering a range of preloved homeware and furniture. To donate furniture, contact your nearest Acorns furniture shop and, again, please ask to Gift Aid your donated goods.
We really appreciate your kind donations. Unfortunately, there are some items that we are unable to accept, as we can’t sell them and it would mean that we would have to pay for disposal.
Please check the list below, or contact your local Acorns shop to find out more.
Please take your donations to your local Acorns charity shop. You can find your nearest shop by using our Acorns shop search. We rely on the funds raised from item donations to continue to deliver the specialist care and support we provide, so you can be sure that your donation will make a real difference.
And please don’t forget to ask about Gift Aid when dropping your donated items off!
