Our Donation Centre is Open!

Our Donation Centre with Paul Miles, Maggie Jack and Sharon Quinn
We are thrilled to announce the opening of our new Donation Centre, located at Unit 1 on Heathfield Industrial Estate in Elland. The premises are a central hub for donated items which will be sorted and distributed to our 13 charity shops across Calderdale. 

The centre opened on Monday 12th July and any donations (excluding furniture) can be dropped off without an appointment between the times of 8am-5pm Monday to Friday, and 9am-4pm on Saturday and 10am-4pm on Sunday. The centre can also be contacted to arrange the collection of items for supporters that do not have transport. Donations of furniture can be arranged via the Hospice’s furniture shops in Brighouse and Hebden Bridge. 

We rely heavily on the income of our shops across Calderdale, which collectively bring in over £1million each year to support our work. The introduction of this new, central hub for donations will make it easier for you to donate your items and for us to ensure that all Overgate shops across Calderdale remain fully stocked with a high-standard of items at all times. 

Tracey Broadbent, Head of Retail, said: “We are delighted to be able to offer this new facility to our supporters. The Donation Centre has a huge amount of storage space and we are now able to accept much more than our previous capacity allowed. The space will also enable us to sort and distribute donated items fairly and evenly across all of our shops.”

Paul Miles, Manager of the Donation Centre, said; “We have been busy getting the Donation Centre up and running and it has been great to welcome supporters this since opening on the 12th. Please do come down if you have any pre-loved items to donate; we’re so grateful for every donation we receive.”

Paul added: “We already have the support of some fantastic volunteers but if anyone has even a few hours a week to spare we would welcome any additions to our team. We’re in particular need of people to help us sort through donations and support the delivery of stock across our shops by driving our vans. Please do get in touch if you think you could help.”
