We rely on the generosity of your donations to keep our Mountbatten charity shops well stocked with quality second-hand items. 

All the proceeds from our shops go towards providing services for Island people who are facing death, dying and bereavement.

Ways to donate

Via our shops

We have shops across the Isle of Wight which can accept smaller donations. However, our shops have limited storage capacity so if you would like to donate furniture or more than one bag of items, we would be grateful if you can take them to our warehouse. Our warehouse is open seven days a week to accept donations, and can be found at River Way Industrial Estate, 16a, Riverway, Newport PO30 5UZ.

Collection

If you need your furniture donation to be collected, please contact our warehouse to arrange a collection date. Please note that our van drivers are unable to accept cash donations. If you would like to make a donation, we would kindly request you visit one of our shops or our main hospice site.
