How to donate pre-loved items

We welcome your pre-loved donations, which help us to raise valuable funds. Due to space and storage limits, our shops are only able to accept delivery of two bags of pre-loved goods per person.

Large donations are accepted by appointment only at our Donation Centre situated at Unit 1, Queensway Avenue South, St Leonards-on-Sea, TN38 9AG. If you would like to arrange a drop-off appointment, please call us on 01424 728728, Monday to Friday from 9am – 1pm.

Pre loved Furniture

Our furniture delivery team are available to collect donations of good quality pre-loved furniture free of charge. Should you wish to donate please call the Donation Centre on 01424 728728 Monday to Friday to arrange a viewing or e-mail photos of the furniture you wish to donate to and we will contact you.

We politely ask you to not leave donations outside our shops or the Donation Centre as we are unable sell these items, incurring a cost for their disposal. This means the Hospice loses vital funds.

Register your donation for Gift Aid

Using Gift Aid means that for every £1, St Michael’s Hospice will receive an extra 25p from HM Revenue & Customs*. This means every £10 raised becomes £12.50 at no extra cost to you. If you wish to sign up, the process only takes a few minutes and we are happy to do this at all of our retail shops and Donation Centre. For more information, please see
