Alabaré Charity Shops
Donations & Collections
We are always in need of good quality second hand clothing, electrical items and bric-a-brac, as well as larger items of furniture, white goods and other household items. Why not give your unwanted or unused items a new lease of life and donate them to an Alabaré charity shop.
If you are donating small items or clothing, we would be grateful if you could take them into your local Alabaré shop (please do not leave items on our shop doorsteps). For larger items or quantities, we provide a flexible and friendly collection service.
For more information about donating to our shops please email us or give us a ring on 01722 322882.
We also happy to offer a professional, comprehensive House Clearance Service.

Can I Gift Aid my donations?
Yes! Retail Gift Aid allows charity shops to claim Gift Aid on the proceeds of sales made on behalf of donors who are UK taxpayers. The process takes the following format:
- A taxpayer donates items to our shop, agrees to the scheme, completes a Gift Aid declaration form and receives a unique identification reference number.
- We contact the donor to inform them that the items have sold and how much for.
- The donor then has the option to take the money (minus commission fee + VAT), or to turn it into a cash donation to Alabaré Christian Care & Support.
