Charity Shop

We are always in need of quality items to sell within our Rainbow Charity Shop; we manage to do this with the help and support received from the local community who regularly donate unwanted items. If you have anything you wish to donate, please drop off at the centre Monday, Wednesday or Friday between 10.00am and 3.00pm. Currently we are unable to do home collections.  The shop is open on Tuesday and Thursday (10.00am to 1.00pm).

What we can take

  • Clothing
  • Shoes, handbags, ties, belts, accessories
  • Bedding, curtains, tablecloths
  • Books
  • CD’s
  • DVD’s
  • Videos
  • Bric-a-brac
  • Pictures

Any unsuitable clothing and shoes that are not fit to be worn again are sold on to a company at a price per kilo; this includes bedding, curtains, tablecloths, underwear, clothes, shoes, textiles. These must be bagged up and labelled as RAGS.

What we have to say NO to

  • Electrical items
  • Furniture
  • Office equipment
  • Crash helmets
  • Computer equipment
  • Roller blades
  • Skate boards
  • Medical equipment
  • Car seats
  • Anything broken, dirty, incomplete or unsafe

There are some other items we cannot sell for safety or legal reasons. If in doubt, please ask before donating.

Please help us to help the people of Preston Road Estate by donating clean and undamaged goods; the money raised in the charity shop is essential income to keep the women’s centre open
