In order to ensure that all donations are quarantined prior to sale, and to navigate space constraints, the ‘Saint Michael’s Hospice Donation Drop Off Point’ on Hookstone Wood Road, Harrogate, HG2 8PN is asking for supporters to call them on 01423 879 687 between 10am-4pm, Monday to Friday to book a slot before arriving.
Supporters are being asked to donate their preloved items there instead of taking items to shops. Gift Aid will not be possible during this interim period and Saint Michael’s is reminding people that they will be unable to return boxes and bags used to deliver the donations in order to adhere to hygiene measures. Enquiries regarding furniture donations would be welcomed to the House and Home Shop on 01423 563230
Chief Executive Tony Collins said:
We are delighted that we have been able to reopen our Donation Drop Off Point after a busy 10 days sorting and distributing your kind donations.
As promised, we are also announcing the launch of booking slots, and would ask our supporters to call us on 01423 879 687 to book in. This new process is intended to allow our retail team a little more time and space to take receipt of your preloved items, all whilst adhering to the strictest COVID-19 measures for the safety of everyone.
