Fifteen local stores (plus our eBay shop) offer loads of brilliant bargains plus a range of services so great they might surprise you.
And the best thing is, every penny of profit made by our shops helps us say a magical 'yes' to another family in need.
Where are our shops?
We’ve got 16 lovely shops in the area. They all sell things you need or just really, really want, and they’re all interested in taking on new volunteers. You can find all the info on our shops, plus directions on how to get there, on our handy store locator.
Are we on eBay?
We certainly are. Browse our fabulous bargains, which are constantly updated. And if YOU sell on eBay, you can opt to support us as your charity of choice.
Do we deliver?
Remember how we like to say yes? Well, yes! Our nice chunky vans will deliver anything that’s just too big to stagger home with. Simply ask in-store.
Donating your stuff
What can you drop off? All of our shops will be delighted to have your high-quality clothing and accessories, furniture, toys, CDs, DVDs, books, homewares, knick-knacks, thingamajigs, whatnots, whimsies, gewgaws and furbelows (whatever they are). We even take some electrical appliances, large or small, if under 3 years old. Just drop them off at your nearest Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice shop. Some things can’t be accepted for safety or legal reasons, so contact us if you’re unsure.
Only in shops? No, you can also pop your unwanted stuff into our donation bins, which are all over the place. Email us if you could have one installed near your home, workplace or college.
Do we collect? We’ll happily whizz round in our van and take away furniture, beds and other large items, as long as they’re in great condition and they’re on our list of accepted stuff (which we can email over to you). You can book a collection online, or call 0800 917 8906 or email us.
Do we do house-clearances? Not only that, but our service is amazing because it’s so fast and efficient. We’ll clear everything from small electrical items to large furniture and then sell or recycle it. Some items can’t be sold on for legal or safety reasons – but we can often recycle or dispose of them for a small fee. Book a house clearance by emailing us or calling 0800 917 8906 and we'll be in touch within 48 hours to make arrangements.
Do we do Gift Aid? Yes, because it means your donations are worth a whole extra 25%. So if you're a UK taxpayer, please pick up a leaflet in-store and get signed up. And you only have to do it once, even if you donate regularly.
Interested in volunteering?
We always need more completely-ordinary-but-totally-splendid people to work in our shops. You could work as little or as often as you like, in a role like shop-floor or back-of-house assistant, volunteer driver/driver’s mate, recycler/upcycler, or visual merchandiser. We also have volunteer vacancies in our online department, based in Huddersfield, as online administrator, photographer, product specialist or eBay seller.
Check out our current volunteering vacancies. You can register online to be a volunteer, ask in-store or call 01484 411040.
