We welcome the donation of items to help us raise money.

Did you know that donations of possessions or services, known as 'non-monetary gifts' or 'gifts in kind', play an important role in keeping the service running?

What is a gift in kind?

Giving in-kind simply means donating something other than money.

For example, by leaving your clothing bags out for us to collect, you are giving a gift in kind.

But we also need gifts – whether items, services or experiences – that can be used as prizes to raffle or our auction in order to raise funds for our missions.

We need to raise more than £5.2 million every single year, so any gift you can offer will be very much appreciated.

How gifts in kind can benefit your business

Gifts in kind could be a great way to utilise your company’s assets or professional skills.

Donating a product or service, or offering a discount,  is an easy yet valuable way for your business to demonstrate your commitment to our cause.

It can also count toward achieving your corporate responsibility goals, saving our valuable resources and enabling us to fundraise even more effectively.
