Donate goods


It is through the generous donations of the people of Cumbria that our hospice shops are so successful.

Donate goods

Our shops are delighted to accept donations that are in good condition including:

  • Clothing/shoes
  • Unwanted gifts
  • Bric-a-brac and collectables
  • Household linens, curtains and bedding
  • Toys and games
  • Books, CDs, DVDs, Blu-rays and vinyl
  • Furniture

If you have any items to donate, please feel free to drop them off at the relevant shop (shop locations can be found here). If you have items to donate but would like them collected from your home, we have our hospice van and volunteer drivers who are happy to come and collect them.

To arrange a pick up for furniture and other items please call 07548377009 or complete the form. Alternatively, you can WhatsApp the same number with your name and photos of your items and we will give you a call back to arrange a collection.

We will endeavour to collect your items as soon as we possibly can. Our current collection days are Monday am, Wednesday pm and Thursday am.

Please note: if our drivers arrive to collect an item(s) that has been incorrectly described we reserve the right to reject this item and not pick-up.

House clearances

Whether you are looking at downsizing, clearing a room or a full house, your unwanted items will be able to make a difference at the Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw. Our professional house clearance service makes donating quality items even easier.

All items collected from your property will be taken directly to the hospice shops in Carlisle and Penrith or listed online through our eBay page.

To book a house clearance please select ‘House Clearance’ on the form before completing or contact the Eden Valley Hospice Furniture Shop on 01228 549473.
