On all other items, there is a limit of 6 strong bags or 4 boxes per person and they must be sealed up. We can’t accept loose items.

Our furniture collection service is also back up and running. You can either call 01904 788 777 or email with photos of the items and contact details to arrange a collection.

Retail update 
Closing the shops meant St Leonard's Hospice has lost significant income which is needed to provide vital care for patients and their families with a life-limiting illness.
We know lots of you have items ready to donate and for that we are truly grateful, as we need your donations and your custom more than ever. To help us save time and cut down on waste, we have a #SortItYourself checklist on social media and also displayed below that asks for only good quality items to be donated which means more time and money can go towards supporting patients and those close to them.


We anticipate being very busy initially, and so we will need to accept donations in a very controlled manner. We will also be quarantining donations for 72 hours before they are sorted, meaning lack of storage space is likely to be an issue.


We will also be limiting what and how much people can donate - a maximum of 6 bags (clothing, books etc.) and 4 cardboard boxes (household items, toys etc.) per person, and we won't be accepting furniture at this stage. Please ensure all bags and boxes are securely sealed. 

If you are signed up for Gift Aid you can label boxes and bags yourself - please attach a label or paper to each bag or box with the date of your donation (for quarantine purposes), your post code, surname and gift aid number on.

Please be patient with us as we anticipate being extremely busy and will obviously be observing social distancing safety measures. 

Sort It Yourself

One big thing you can do before donating is #SortItYourself. We have put together these checklists below to help you help us. This will help us save time and cut down on waste, meaning more time and money can go towards supporting patients and those close to them. 

We hope to post more updates very soon about when you can shop, donate and volunteer - as well as, crucially, how we will be keeping you all safe. Thank you again for your patience.

How to donate

If you have furniture, or a number of bags, and are unable to transport them yourself, we do have a collection service organised from our Retail Office. Please telephone 01904 788 777 to arrange a convenient time for the drivers to call at your home.

You can help by donating your unwanted, good quality items to our shops or Donation Centre, open Monday to Saturday from 9am until 4pm. The address is: 201 Acomb Road, Acomb, York YO24 4HD.

Gift Aid

If you are a UK taxpayer, you can Gift Aid the goods you donate. All you need to do is pick up a form from your nearest shop and fill out your details to ensure that the Hospice can claim an extra 25p for every £1 raised from the sale of the goods. That means a boost of 25% for St Leonard’s without any extra cost to you! We’ll give you a unique reference number to quote when you donate - if you forget this number don't worry, you can give us your name and postcode. Using this number, the Hospice shop will track the item, noting the selling price, and then claim the Gift Aid. Last year the Hospice raised an additional £70,976 through Retail Gift Aid.
