Your Freepost label can be printed at any collect+ location or at home; each label is valid for 28 days from the date of your online request. If you are a UK taxpayer, please include Gift Aid at this point. There is no cost to you, and YMCA can claim an additional 25p for every £1 raised through the sale of your donated items. Drop off your donation at a Collect+ drop-off location near you.

Other ways to donate

Free house clearance

Please call your nearest YMCA shop to find out if they offer this service. We may be able to collect suitable items that have been bagged and boxed up ready for collection on an agreed date.

Clothing banks

We have several clothing banks that you can use 24/7. Please note, we cannot claim Gift Aid on items donated in this way.

Gift Aid

If you pay UK income or UK capital gains tax, we can claim 25% on every item you donate. Please fill out a Gift Aid form in our shop the first time you donate, so that we are able to claim an extra 25p for every £1 we raise from your donations.
