Sorry for any inconvenience caused - we'll keep you updated as soon as guidance changes.
When you visit you’ll see we’ve made a few changes to the shops to ensure the safety of our customers and volunteers. We hope you’ll understand that we’re doing everything we can to keep your experience enjoyable as well as safe.
Our warehouses are in Wigston at Pullman Road and Glenfield, offer ample parking and are the easiest places for you to donate.
The Hospice is grateful for the generous donations given to support its work. However in order to raise income and ensure that we attract customers to our shops we politely request that items are of good quality, not broken or soiled. If items are broken, damaged or soiled it means we have the expense of disposing of the items.
We do not accept the following items:
Fabric covered furniture with no fire labels
White goods and large electrical items
Electric and gas fires
Car seats for children
Duvets and pillows
Furnishings need to comply with the 1988 fire regulations and items must have fire labels attached. Any items of furniture made from glass requires the British Standard kite mark.
If you would like advice, or would like to check what you can/can’t donate please call (0116) 231 3666
