Shops temporarily close

We have taken the difficult decision to temporarily close our 14 shops and donation centre, as a result of the impact of Coronavirus. We know many of you will be disappointed but please be assured the safety of our customers, volunteers and staff are of paramount importance to us and so the shops will remain closed until further notice.

We appreciate many of you will now have time to sort out your cupboards but please can we ask that you hold onto your donations until our shops reopen. Please remember, leaving them outside the shops is fly tipping!

Closing the shops means St Leonard's Hospice will lose significant income which is needed for us to provide vital care for patients and their families with a life-limiting illness. We really appreciate that this is a difficult time for everyone but if you are able to support us, please do so here.

Thank you for understanding and your continued support  – now and in the future.

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.
