Donate to Charity When Moving Homes
Moving home is the perfect time to get rid of some of your unwanted belongings and donate to charity. Giving to charity collections when moving is beneficial to all – you have less clutter to move and unpack, your new home will be more spacious, and others will benefit from the sale of your unused goods. To help you do your part, we’ve got all the information you need on donating to charity when moving homes here.
Charities you could donate to
There are many amazing charities up and down England that do fantastic work to help others, and all of these charities will be grateful for your items. Many charities, including the ones we’ve listed here, will even collect your larger items to make the process simpler for you while you’re busy moving home. If you’re looking for inspiration on the right charity for you to choose, we have some of our favourites here:
- The British Red Cross
The Red Cross is an international organisation that offers aid across the globe, playing a huge role in areas of wars and disasters.
- Dogs Trust
The Dogs Trust has been working hard for over 150 years to save the lives of countless abused and unloved dogs. The money your goods will make goes to feeding and sheltering dogs while they search for their forever homes.
- Cancer Research UK
Cancer Research UK is the world’s leading independent organisation in the fight against cancer, and their work has helped to make the prevention, diagnosing and treatment of cancer easier.
- Salvation Army
The Salvation Army is a religious organisation that lends a supporting hand to those in need of serious care, such as the elderly, drug addicts, victims of human trafficking and any at-risk minor, most of whom have no one else to turn to in their hour of need.
What items will charities accept?
Charities are very flexible when it comes to accepting donations, appreciating the gain of all items large and small. For hygiene and safety reasons, however, some items are prohibited. We’ve listed some of the things you can donate here, but if you have questions about any of your items, contact your chosen organisation for more information.
- Clothes and shoes
- Furniture, including sofas, beds and tables (check with your local branch to confirm this as not all stores have the capacity to hold large items)
- Games consoles
- Tableware (plates, bowls, mugs, cutlery, etc.)
- Pans and baking equipment
