Lost Stock Charity Partners
By donating any Lost Stock clothes you don’t want to charity, you can continue to do good and maximise the impact of your purchases.
We’ve partnered with a range of charities to make it as easy as possible for you to donate. Remember that most of these charities will take items from Lost Stock as well as clothes and other items you may already have at home.
Donate clothes and help those going difficult times
Sue Ryder supports people through the most difficult times of their lives. Whether that’s a terminal illness, the loss of a loved one or a neurological condition – they are there when it matters. Their doctors, nurses and carers give people the compassion and expert care they need to help them live the best life they possibly can.
During the Coronavirus crisis, Sue Ryder had no choice but to close all 450 of their charity shops across the UK, meaning a huge drop in income at a time when most fundraising activity was cancelled.
How to donate:
If there are items in your Lost Stock box you don’t want, you can help Sue Ryder raise vital funds by sending them directly to: Sue Ryder (LOST STOCK), Sheaf Close, Lodge Farm Industrial Estate, Northampton NN5 7UL
You can also drop off in person. Find out if your nearest Sue Ryder shop is open to drop your goods off free of charge here.
