Donate items to us

We ALWAYS need donations of media (CDs, DVDs, vinyl). Any donation of books or music, large or small, is always gratefully received.

There are some items that we cannot sell:
- Electrical goods
- Damaged or broken items
- Safety items like crash helmets and children's car seats

In fact it costs Oxfam money to dispose of these items.
