charity shops

The Havens Hospices Charity Shops play an important role in our fundraising efforts. Our branches cover a large part of south and mid Essex.

The shops help in generating much needed income for the hospices as well as providing a listening ear to customers. You can also visit your local shop to collect our latest leaflets and updates on forthcoming events.

The Havens Hospices Charity Shops rely entirely on the generosity of their local communities both as customers and volunteers. But, most importantly, as donors of good quality saleable items.

what can I donate?

We accept a wide range of donated goods. Whether you are downsizing your wardrobe or having a spring clean, we are grateful for anything that you are able to donate, including;

  • All types of clothing, shoes and accessories.
  • Books.
  • DVD’s and CD’s.
  • Bric-a-brac.
  • Toys and games.

If you would like to donate please drop them into your nearest Havens Hospices shop. 

**Please note we are unable to accept furniture or electrical items**
