Shop drop for the Philippines

Shop Drop for the Philippines

Help our life-saving work for the people of the Philippines by donating your quality clothes and goods to one of our many shops across the UK.

We can turn your clothing, accessories, household items, furniture or multimedia into cash to help those affected by the crisis. Simply ask to put your donated items towards our Typhoon Haiyan Appeal. Just one small bag of goods can buy a hygiene parcel containing everyday essentials, such as toothpaste and soap, to provide for a family of five for a month.

Shop to save lives

When you drop off your donations, why not shop with us as well? Your local Red Cross store will have a huge variety of items on offer, and with shops specialising in vintage, books, designer, bridal, furniture and electrical you're sure to find something for you.

Victoria and David Beckham support shop drop

Victoria and David Beckham donated boxes of their clothes to support the shop drop. Dozens of pieces from the couple’s wardrobe were sold at the Red Cross shop in Kensington & Chelsea, which specialises in designer clothing.

Victoria Beckham said: “Typhoon Haiyan has devastated the Philippines, killing thousands and leaving hundreds of thousands homeless, and the Red Cross is carrying out an enormous relief project to help all those in desperate need.

"David and I urge everyone in Britain to join us in supporting the Shop Drop for the Philippines campaign. Everyone has something in their closet they were holding onto – a dress, suit, or pair of shoes they thought they might wear again. Dig them out, bag them up, drop them off and give someone else the chance to buy them. You’ll be raising much-needed funds for the Red Cross’ aid effort.”

Why we sell your items in the UK

Wherever possible we source necessary items from the affected region because this benefits the local economy, reduces our transport costs and speeds up our delivery times. For this reason, the British Red Cross only accepts donated goods for resale in the UK. Read more about why.
