Donating during Covid
We are accepting donations but to keep you and our volunteers safe we have updated our operating procedures.
Please can we can ask when you are donating you:
- Always wear a mask
- Maintain 2 metres distance between your self and anyone else
- Try to limit the number of visits by consolidating multiple donations or join up with neighbours etc.
- If you have a large donation email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a time to drop-off
The safest ways to donate are by donating money so we can buy stock when we need it or you can arrange a supermarket delivery to our warehouse (see address below) Tues – Fri 10am – 12.30pm

Sat 10-12pm: Loveworks, Unit 4, Redhill 23 Business Park, 29 Holmethorpe Avenue, Redhill RH1 2GD – Please go to the large shutter door and either leave donations outside it or on the shelf to the left of the door.
