Preparations are under way for the re-opening of our charity shops in the not so distant future and we are in need of donations

To keep our stores in Ashby and Brigg full of good-quality stock ready for when we open our doors again (whenever that may be) we are setting up a donation station at our North Lincolnshire centre, DN20 0BJ.

The trusty old Fundraising van Cyril, will be parked in the main car park with its doors open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays’ from 10am-2pm for you to come along and drop off any clothing, bric-a-brac, toys, CD’s and much more that you no longer need inside.

The sales from your donated items will help us to change the lives of the rescue dogs we have in our care. For a full list of what we can and can’t accept as donations, please click here.

We may be in need of donations, but nothing is more important than the safety of our staff and the public. So to keep everyone safe there will be no one manning the van and we ask that you seal all of your donations into bin liners and securely close your bags. Please do not over fill your bags as our staff will be carrying them around once disinfected. Please place all of your items in the vehicle and slide them to the back of the van and ensure you follow social distancing guidelines with those around you. If you feel unwell or are displaying any symptoms please follow government advice and do not donate.

Finally, please do not enter the centre or site. Stay in the car park and do not go up to our main office. This is to keep everyone safe and minimise the spread of the virus. Our wonderful Groomer, Claire, will be keeping a close eye on things from the window and there will be a number on the van for you to call if you have any questions.

If you have some items you’d like to donate but are not local to our North Lincolnshire centre, don’t worry, we will be updating our social media channels with our vans movements as it goes around our local communities asking for donations.

We would like to thank you again for your support during this hard time.

Please don’t forget if you are a Gift Aid Donor, you can place a piece of paper with your name and address inside the bag and we will be able to Gift Aid your items!

Cyril will be waiting for you from Wednesday 13th May 2020 at 10am!
