We accept donations during opening hours, at both of our Shops in Alford and Aboyne.

One of our helpful volunteers will take your items into our storeroom for sorting.

We ask that you don’t leave any donation items unattended at our shop fronts or office front door.

If you are a UK taxpayer, you may be asked if you want to Gift Aid your donation: this means that the charity can receive an extra 25p from the Government, for every £1 they raise from selling your goods.

Our volunteers simply take a few details from yourself and then issue you with a handy little card that you can place into your purse/wallet for future use.

Even items of clothing or materials that are past their best can be taken to the shop. Just mark them as ‘rag’ and we can send them away to be recycled raising more money for us.
