One of the easiest ways to support our vital work is to donate clothes, toys, books, and more to be sold in our shops. Your good quality pre-loved items make a huge difference to local children and young people living with life-threatening and life-limiting conditions.

  • How do I donate?

    Donating your pre-loved items to one of our shops is super easy. Simply pop them along to your nearest Rainbows shop.

    Unfortunately, as we are quite a small retail operation, we don’t have the facilities to collect items.

  • What can I donate?

    • Clothing – Ladieswear, menswear and childrenswear
    • Accessories
    • Jewellery
    • DVDs, Blu-Rays, CDs and Vinyl
    • Bric-a-Brac – including vases, picture frames, ornaments and kitchenware
    • Toys and Games
    • Books
  • What can’t I donate?
