Furniture and electrical charity shops

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

Shop reopening notice

We are starting to reopen some of our shops.  You can check here whether your nearest shop is open yet.

At present we are working with a reduced team and may be unable to collect or deliver large furniture items that need two people to lift and carry. Please do call your local shop if you would like to discuss a furniture collection or delivery and we will do our best to accommodate your request, if possible. 

Please note that while some shops will remain closed for a little while longer, our online gift shop is still open - please visit!

Please do not leave donations or deliveries outside shops while they are closed. They may get ruined by the weather, cause a fire hazard, or get stolen. Thank you for understanding.

All of our charity shops may sell, or accept donations of, furniture and electrical items.

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

Prior to your visit, please contact your local charity shop to check with them 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 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.
