Furniture and electrical charity shops

Buy used furniture and electrical goods or donate items at a Red Cross charity shop near you.

Second-hand furniture and electrical charity shops

All of our charity shops may sell, or accept donations of, furniture and electrical items. We also have specialist furniture and electrical charity shops across the country (find your nearest shop in the list below).

Our specialist furniture and electrical charity shops can help if you:

  • have a growing family and need to expand your furniture and equipment on a budget
  • are moving house and want to donate your unwanted household goods to help others
  • are upgrading furniture or equipment and want to divert your old goods from landfill.

If you can’t get to our specialist stores easily, there are electrical items available on the British Red Cross eBay store. You can also find household goods, equipment and furnishings of all kinds in our charity shops across the country.

Furniture and electrical donations

All your donations must be in good condition so that we can sell them.

Prior to your visit, please contact your local charity shop or specialist appliances and furniture shop to check with the team about your donation. You can check whether or not they can accept white goods such as fridges, washing machines and dishwashers.

We particularly want:

  • TVs, DVD players and other media players
  • small electrical appliances, such as lamps, games consoles and hair straighteners.

We can only sell items that are legal and safe to sell. Please do not donate:

  • gas appliances
  • microwaves and electric heaters
  • computer hard drives
  • mobility scooters.

See our full list of items we can’t sell.

Collecting your furniture and electrical donations

Our charity shops may be able to collect items of furniture or appliances that you are not able to bring in yourself. Contact your local charity shop to find out if they can collect your items.
