Shop on the high street

Your unwanted clothes, books, bric a brac, toys, music and film help save children’s lives.

Whether you're an international fashion house donating an entire collection, or an individual donating a single item, you can be sure your donation will be treated respectfully, merchandised carefully, and priced sensibly. 

Our business is built on acts of kindness. By giving to us, you can be sure the proceeds of your donation will contribute towards saving children's lives. If you are an individual making a donation, you can drop it off at our stores (see stores for opening times).

If you are a company who wishes to make a donation to one of our Living and Giving shops, please call 020 7012 6400 and ask to speak to one of Mary’s Brand Ambassadors.  Alternatively, you can email them directly.

Does the quality matter?

If we can sell it at a profit, we want it. Our favourite items are designer fashion and bric-a-brac but items we are unable to accept are electrical goods (except in selected stores - please check first) large items of furniture, underwear, used cosmetics, food or alcohol.

Our Living and Giving shops have a reputation for selling designer labels - and these items give us the best return - but we welcome all donations. Donations are sorted and passed onto the most suitable Save the Children shop for sale, or to our rag merchant. Nothing is wasted.

Do you collect items?

Sadly, no.  We are generally unable to offer this service.  If you have a high value item, please contact your local shop manager.

Can I volunteer in a shop?


Of course. We’re always on the lookout for talented who can help us stand out from the competition. If you have just a few hours to spare, . It’s a great way to meet people and learn new skills.
