Oxfam shops are always delighted to accept donations of quality undamaged items that you no longer want. Our shop teams are trained to make as much money as possible from your generosity to fund Oxfam's poverty busting work around the world. Items that sell particularly well are current fashion trends, quality paperback fiction and all accessories. And Oxfam is unique in that any textiles that are not sold via our shops are sent to our Wastesaver recycling plant to ensure we make as much money as possible from your generosity.
If you would like to confirm if we will take a particular type of donation, give us a ring on 0191 4883574 and speak to one of our volunteers before arriving.
Ask in store when donating about signing up to Giftaid your donations, which enables Oxfam to receive more money for each of your items that we sell.
