Our Donation Centre

Our Donation Centre is open, however we are working to strict opening times to support social distancing. We are only able to accept donations during the opening hours below.

Donation Centre opening times: 

Monday – Sarurday: 9.00am – 1.00pm

Wednesday and Sunday – Closed


Following the latest Government announcement, all of our shops are now back open however our coffee shops will remain closed until further notice. Please do not leave any donations outside our Donation Centre or shops at any time.

With regards to community collections we are asking if you can contact our Furniture Store by taking photos of the furniture you would like to donate, and email them across to the team at furniture@ashgatehospicecare.org.uk . This way they can see the condition of the items before sorting a collection date. If you have any other items such as clothes which you would like collecting, please call the team on 01246 229536 and they will arrange a collection date and time.

We would like to say a special thank you to our customers who continue to donate items and shop with us online via our eBay store and the Ashgate Furniture Company. Your support makes a huge difference and and will ensure we can continue caring for the thousands of families across the region who are living with a life-limiting illness.

About Donating to Ashgate Hospicecare:
Any item which is donated which cannot be resold has to be disposed of at a cost to the hospice. We are grateful for all donations, however, at the moment, we are only to accept items that can be resold in our stores and we are not able to accept items which we would usually recycle. Some examples of items that we cannot accept are:
  • Medical equipment
  • Suitcases
  • Carpets
  • Soiled or wet items
  • Broken items or items with missing parts
  • Microwaves
  • Safety equipment
  • Used duvets, pillows or cushions
