Each week we put up a list on our Facebook page asking for donations of various goods.  For furniture and whiteware collections we require a minimum of 48 hours notice (Monday to Friday) as our van is also used for food rescue and we need to check that we have volunteers available to collect the big ticket items.

Below is our standard recurring shopping list. Please ensure that your donations are clean and fit to be sent straight to its new home.
