Donate to our shops
Please note that due to the Coronavirus outbreak we are not currently able to accept donations at all of our shops.
Please click here for details about where we are able to accept your generous donations at this time.
There will also be a van outside our charity shop in Prospect Place, Ashton (just across the road from our Ashton book shop) on Thursdays from 10am until 3pm to accept your donations for these two shops – unfortunately we are unable to accept and store donations in these shops so the van will transport them to be quarantined for 72 hours first.
Please call us on 07923172880 if you would like more details or to arrange the drop-off or collection of any furniture donations. Thank you.
St Catherine’s is incredibly grateful for the wonderful donations of pre-loved clothes, accessories, toys, homeware and furniture that we receive.
If you’ve had a clear-out and would like St Catherine’s to benefit, you can drop off your unwanted items at any of our shops. Click here to find your nearest one.
You can also drop them off at the hospice Donation Centre, situated around the back of the hospice in Lostock Hall. It is staffed from 10am until 2pm Monday to Friday, and there is also an out of hours donation drop-off point which can be accessed between 10am and 2pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

Gift aid your donations
We can make your wonderful donations go further for St Catherine’s when you gift aid them. If you’re a UK tax payer, it means we can make an extra 25p for every £1 your goods sell for.
All you have to do is complete a form when you donate your goods and we will do the rest. You can also download the form here if you’d like to fill it out in advance.
We’ll even give you a Gift Aid ‘Card for Life’ when you sign up with a unique donor ID which we can simply scan every time you donate to us.
