Donating Items

Donating your items to Phyllis Tuckwell

Due to the overwhelming support of our community, as of 1st May, we are currently unable to accept items at our Donation Centre on Wednesday’s and Friday’s.

We can’t thank you enough for your support of our Donation Centre and shops since were able to open again.

We have learnt a lot over in how to keep us all safe from COVID, and to make sure that the donations we sort and send out to sell in our shops, are also safe after a quarantine period.

We are pleased to say that you will no longer need to book an appointment to drop off your items at our Donation Centre in Farnham.

The only measures we are keeping in place for now are….

  • we are still only allowing people to donate up to 6 bags or boxes at a time. Your kindly donated items will continue to be quarantined for 2 days before being sorted and sent out to our shops – as you can imagine, this uses up a lot of our storage space! 
  • please continue to wear a face mask when you arrive to drop your donations off. Our team will also be wearing one.
  • please check the details below as to what we can and can’t accept before you come. This will really help us reduce our expenditure, as it costs us to dispose of unsaleable items.

If you have any queries, please do get in contact with us at the details at the bottom of the page.

What you can donate
  • Clean clothes
  • Shoes
  • Accessories – handbags, scarfs, hats
  • Books
  • Bric-a-brac
  • Complete jigsaw puzzles
  • Complete board games
  • Gifts – new toiletry packs
What we aren’t able to accept

Sadly, we are unable to accept the following….

  • Soft & unboxed toys
  • Used bedding & pillows
  • Garden equipment
  • Pet equipment
  • Highchairs/pushchairs
  • Bicycles
  • Small electrical items
  • Suitcases

It costs us over £14,000 a year to dispose of things that are damaged or unsaleable at our Donation Centre, so please help us reduce this cost!

Support from local businesses

If you are representing an organization or company, why not give one of our ‘Donation Stations’ a home in your meeting room, offices, reception or staff canteen? These are cardboard donation stations that hold approximately 20 full donation bags of stock and come with a supply of bags to distribute amongst your staff. Our friendly collection drivers can come and empty it when it is full – you just need to let us know!

We can also provide supporting leaflets and posters to really raise awareness amongst the staff and visitors to your premises. Click the button below to order your donation station!

If you already have one in your place of work that needs emptying, please click the button below, and we will contact you to find out when it is best to visit you.

You may not be aware, but we have a number of online shops – to take a look at all the amazing items we have on sale online, click below! You are sure to find something to take your fancy!
