Donating goods

Donations update:

We are currently receiving huge volumes of donations to our Pontefract shop - thank you to everyone who has had a lockdown clear out and has donated to us!

With over 2,000 donations to sort through we are unable to accept any further donations until Monday 13 July in Pontefract. Going forward, we will be taking donations in Pontefract on Mondays and Tuesdays only.

We are able to accept a limited number of donations at our Castleford clothing shop. When the daily limit is reached we will not be able to accept any more items until the next day.

Covid-19 donations update:

We are gradually beginning to re-open our shops, starting with Pontefract and Castleford furniture on 15 June, Castleford clothing on 18th June, Little Kingdom on 26th June These shops will run on reduced opening hours which can be found here.

Donations will be accepted at both the Pontefract and Castleford clothing stores, however the Castleford furniture shop is unable to accept donations and furniture donations must be pre-booked for collection by calling the store on 01977 556836​.

We have developed a separate procedure for the donation of goods at our Pontefract shop, so shoppers have an easier shopping experience in-store. If you are donating items, please let the member of staff on the door know, and they will assist you with your donations and advise you of the drop off point.  Please do not leave any items outside, or bring items into the store.
Thank you for your cooperation.

Please remember the Prince of Wales Hospice shops are always in need of donations of your unwanted items, and depend on your generosity and support. An average bag of good quality donations can be worth as much as £30 - enough to fund a home visit to a bereaved relative who doesn’t have family support.

If you would like to donate your unwanted items to us, simply take them to any of our shops. To donate furniture, or other large items, please contact our Castleford furniture Shop on 01977 556836, or our Pontefract clothing and home store on 01977 600737.  We'll arrange a time to pick up the item, free of charge, at a convenient time.
