Thank you for looking after mum. I am so grateful for the kind care the whole team gave to mum and for helping us through this sad time. She received excellent care and as a family we received so much support.

Retail Update – July 2020

Thank you to everyone for your patience and understanding whilst our charity shops have been closed. We are starting to open up again! Following recent government announcements, we have opened our Prestwich shop, Furniture Showroom and Donation Centre from Monday 15th June. We will keep you updated as we re-open the rest of our shops.

Opening times (please make sure you check our social media for DAILY UPDATES on opening times at the Donation Centre as when we hit capacity for donations we have to close and we wouldn’t like anyone to have a wasted trip):

  • Prestwich shop : Monday to Saturday 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
  • Donation Centre, Unit 13 : Monday to Friday 9:00 am – 1:00 pm
  • Furniture Showroom : Monday to Friday 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
  • Millgate Boutique (Minden) : Monday to Saturday 9:30 am – 4:30 pm 

We know lots of you have items ready to donate and for that, we are truly grateful. We will need your donations, and your custom, more than ever.

We anticipate being very busy initially, and so we will need to accept donations in a very controlled manner. Our Donation Centre at Dale Industrial Estate in Radcliffe will be accepting donations from 15th June between the hours of 9 am and 1 pm, Monday to Friday only. Please note that we have limited space so we may close early if we hit capacity. Keep an eye on our social media for updates.

Also, we will not be accepting donations at any of our other shops until further notice as we are unable to implement the required social distancing measures. Our collection and delivery service will continue to be suspended until further notice.

We will also be quarantining donations for 72 hours before they are sorted, meaning a lack of storage space is likely to be an issue.

One big thing you can do before donating is check we can take your goods. We’ve put together checklists below to help you help us. This will help us save time and cut down on waste, meaning more time and money can go towards supporting patients and those close to them.

Watch this space! We will post more updates very soon about when you can shop, donate and volunteer – as well as, crucially, how we will be keeping you all safe. Thank you again for your patience.
