Your donated items can be resold in our charity shops.

We are only able to accept donated items which are in a clean and re-saleable condition. We do not wish to cause disappointment or difficulties for you should we be unable to accept your donation so please read the below.  

If you have a collection booked our experienced team will assess your item(s) at the time of collection. We recommend you avoid making any related arrangements (e.g. for delivery of replacement items) before your collection has taken place.

Gift Aid on donated goods

Gift Aid is a scheme enabling Martlets to reclaim tax on a donation made by a UK taxpayer. This means that, if you pay UK tax and agree to Martlets claiming Gift Aid on your donation, the Government will give us 25p on top of every £1 you give to us and it does not cost you a penny.


Arrange a furniture collection

We are unable to arrange any furniture collections.
