We appreciate and accept goods such as food as well as second hand goods in working order e.g. electrical and household items, furniture, musical instruments, gardening equipment, virtually anything provided it is in working order. The first priority is to use it for our children in the various houses and if not we sell it in order to generate income for the Home.
The following times for dropping off donations.
Unfortunately due to staffing and storage we are only able to accept donations of goods from Monday to Thursday between 8am-4.30pm.
We can accept donations of food on weekends as these can go directly to the houses.
With the current economic climate we are finding things very difficult in meeting basic needs let alone special projects.
Donations can be made to:
