How do you donate items to us?

Drop off at our shop

Donations can be dropped off at our shop on 466 Dumbarton Road, G11 6SQ during opening hours.

We are still required to isolate donations for 48hours and have limited space to store donations. There may be times when you try to drop donations off that we will need to turn them away because we are full. We hope this doesn’t happen often but need to make you aware.

If we are full, and can’t take anymore donations we will let you know when you try to drop them off. We kindly ask that if we are full on the day you try to drop off donations that you understand, and treat our volunteers with consideration and respect.

Please note we are unable to accept cots or large furnishings as donations at our shop.

Please contact us to arrange a collection of any cots, changing units, beds, bunk beds, furniture that you wish to donate.

We collect donations for free

Our collection diary is now full until December. If you are looking to arrange a collection please contact us at the end of November to check if our collection diary is open for 2021.

If you live within the City of Glasgow, or within a 15 mile radius of the city and would like to arrange for our driver to collect items from you please phone us and we will get back to you. Due to reduced numbers of staff and volunteers we are asking that you do not email us to arrange a collection.

What happens to the items after you have donated them to us?

Once we have received donations, and they have been safely quarantined, our BB&B team get to work checking them over, making sure they are complete and safe.

Each item is checked, and double checked, then our team log the item and either put it in our Starter Pack storage facility or for individual sale in our shop.

Around 90% of the items we receive are allocated to our Starter Packs, any over stock we have is put up for sale in our shop. All funds received from items sold in our shop go straight back into our organisation!

All donations, big and small, make a huge difference to the families we work with. Without your donations we would not be able to provide our free Starter Packs to families.

Thank you for your support!
