Good news!

Our shops are accepting donations once again. Please check below for which days your local shop accepts donations.

We have taken all precautions to ensure the shops are safe for staff, volunteers and customers, and that all the COVID-19 safety measures meet government guidelines.

Donating your quality unwanted items to our shops is a great way to help us raise money so we can carry on looking after people in our community. Your donations to our shops raise over £250,000 every year for the hospice.

Thank you for your support.

Donation days

We accept donations between 11am and 3pm on the following days.

  • Banbury: Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday
  • Bicester: Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday
  • Brackley: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday
  • Chipping Norton: Monday, Wednesday and Saturday
  • Moreton-in-Marsh: Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday
  • Shipston-on-Stour: Monday, Wednesday and Friday

Please be aware that due to the guidelines around donations and for general health and safety at Katharine House, we no longer accept any donations at the hospice itself.

Please take any donations you have to your nearest shop on the days and times stated. Thank you.

To save any disappointment, it's advisable to call ahead first to make sure we have the space available. We advise this because the space is limited in each shop. So although we’ve given a window of 11.00am–3.00pm for donations, it’s a case of when we’re full we’re full, and we will unfortunately have to refuse any donations on the grounds of health and safety when we reach that point.

So please call ahead first, or drop your donations off earlier rather than later on the days stated. For full opening times and contact details, please see our shops page.

What you can donate

We're looking for the following items:

  • Clothing
  • Bric-a-brac
  • Linens
  • CDs and DVDs
  • Books

Unfortunately we are unable to accept electrical items or large items of furniture.

If you have something a bit different to donate, which isn't listed above, please feel free to contact your local shop once they're open again and they'll be happy to help.
