Help St Helena Hospice and support local people facing incurable illness and bereavement. Your donated goods will be promoting a more responsible way of living.

Most of the things people send sit in homes for years and then often end up in landfill. By donating your old items, you’ll be giving them a new home and helping more people buy used, instead of new.

We make sure nothing goes to waste. Every donation is sold, repurposed or recycled. Be a part in fuelling the circular economy and start packing up your box.
