DONATING ITEMS

Donating items to LOROS shops

The Hospice is grateful for the generous donations given to support its work. However in order to raise income and ensure that we attract customers to our shops we politely request that items are of good quality, not broken or soiled. If items are broken, damaged or soiled it means we have the expense of disposing of the items.

  • Clean clothes
  • Bric-a-brac items
  • Small electrical items
  • Boxed toys and games
  • Computer games and consoles
  • Books

Furnishings need to comply with the 1988 fire regulations and items must have fire labels attached. Any items of furniture made from glass requires the British Standard kite mark.

Items we do not accept

  • Videos/cassettes
  • Dismantled furniture
  • Fabric covered furniture with no fire labels
  • White goods and large electrical items
  • Electric and gas fires
  • Hazardous chemicals
  • Helmets bike/horse-riding
