Charities, community groups, schools and social enterprises

From graphics to giveaways, planks of wood to plants, there’s a whole host of items waiting for a home. Sign up to tell us what you need or usually accept or call us when there’s something specific we should look out for. Unsure if we can help? Let’s have a chat.

How does it work?

Sign your organisation up on our system using the "Sign up to receive donations" button above and let us know what you need. 

Events tend to generate a whole array of different items and materials, if it’s something specific you want us to look out for, make a note on the form or just give us a call - we receive everything from flat-pack furniture, to build materials, in all kinds of quantities.

Find out what we do and don't accept.

We aim to distribute items on a first come first serve basis but with a local first approach. We will then be in touch if you are first on the list and the nearest to the item location.

To note: Items donated have been previously used within an event setting. Therefore, items may not be provided in perfect condition.


When an event takes place in your area, we will be in touch to let you know the type of items which are leftover.

We will send out a "Donation Alert" to all organisations in the area that have requested the types of materials the event has to donate.  

If you are interested in any of the items, all you need to do is let us know and we reserve them for you. 


If we can allow collections we will be in touch to arrange this with you. If the event cannot have collections or you are unable to collect yourselves, we will organise delivery of the items to your location.

We are working towards a zero-waste circular economy and the more people know about what we do, the more we can do.

Once you've received your items, enjoy!


If you can, please send us some images of the items in use, or tag us on your social media. We are working towards a zero-waste circular economy and the more people know about it, the more donations we will receive and redistribute.
