Donating low-quality goods
For all low-quality donated goods, we kindly ask you to place them in our designated rag bins outside our shops. If you are uncertain about the quality of your donation, or you are unsure where the rag bin is located, feel free to ask any of our retail team for assistance.
If you have any questions about what we can and cannot accept, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us and check on 0303 4444 999 or by dropping us an email at email@example.com.
Thank you for supporting your local air ambulance!
