Our Shops

We're on a mission to be London's answer to sustainable fashion.

We think our charity shops are some of the best around. We look forward to seeing you in one soon!

Last year your donated items raised a massive £5.6 million for Trinity. We rely on the generosity of your donations to keep our London charity shops stocked.

All the proceeds from our shops go towards providing compassionate end of life care in our hospice and your local community.

If you are thinking of making a donation of goods to Trinity, please read the guidelines below about what we can and cannot accept as donations in our shops, thank you.

What to donate to Trinity

We gratefully accept:

  • good quality women's, men's and children's clothing
  • good quality shoes, accessories, handbags and jewellery
  • good quality homeware   

Unfortunately in most of our shops we are unable to accept the following donated items, either for health and safety reasons, due to changes we have had to make in our shops because of COVID-19, or because our shops no longer sell them:

  • books
  • CDs and DVDs
  • linens, bedding, duvets and pillows
  • prams or baby car seats
  • toys and games
  • medical equipment
  • electrical items
  • furniture

See other ways how you can donate your old books, DVDs, CDs and games to Trinity.

Ways to donate

Donate goods at your local Trinity charity shop

We have shops across London, so pop in to your nearest store to donate. Our shop staff will not be able to accept any donations of any of the items on the list outlined above, either because we no longer sell those items in our shops or for health and safety or hygiene reasons.

Don't forget to Gift Aid your donations if you can so we can claim an additional 25% of the sale value of your items at no additional cost to you. Ask any member of our shops team about becoming a Gift Aider.

Drop items off in our donation bins outside the hospice

Drop your donations off in our new donation bins outside the front of the hospice. You will find them to the right of the front door at 30 Clapham Common North Side, London SW4 0RN.

If you are a UK taxpayer, please print and complete a Gift Aid form to include with your donation. This allows us to raise an extra 25p for every £1 that your donation generates. If you're already signed up for Gift Aid with Trinity, please include a note inside the bag with your Gift Aid donor ID (which can be found on letters and emails from our Gift Aid team). If you can't find your Gift Aid donor ID, you can just include your full name and postcode.

Make sure your donations are packaged up carefully, protecting anything delicate or breakable. We would recommend putting them in a waterproof bag too!

Don't forget to Gift Aid your donation and help us raise an extra 25%

How your donations help

Last year, it cost £16m to run Trinity. Just 26% of which came from the NHS. Thanks to donations like yours, our shops raise an incredible £5m to support our vital end-of-life and palliative care services. 

Your donation also makes the first class palliative and end of life care we provide completely free charge to patients and their families, and ensures we're accessible to everyone who needs our care, whenever and wherever they need it.
