We rely totally on donated items. We take all sorts of ‘Anything and Everything’ and turn it in to cash i.e. ‘Rags to Riches’ – non-saleable textile items are sold to our re-cycling company and suitable items i.e. quilts, towels etc go to the Sanctuary as animal bedding. Working electrical items can be PAT tested by our qualified tester based at our Witney shop, prior to going on sale. We can sell any good quality items.
We also sell furniture and can provide a collection and a delivery service (there is a small charge for delivery). We do need to check prior to acceptance of furniture donations that they are of saleable quality i.e. clean and compliant with fire safety standards. Soft furnishings need to have the fire retardant label attached. Therefore without risk of causing offence we do reserve the right to refuse items, if considered not to be suitable for sale in our shops. In this way we try to avoid incurring a disposal charge for non-saleable items.
