Age UK Leicester Emergency Appeal


Age UK are appealing to anyone who has any items of furniture or bric-a-brac they no longer want to please get in touch with them as soon as possible. The only restriction is on any fabric items such as mattresses and settees as unfortunately, they cannot resell these without the fire labels.

The warehouse in Leicester hasn’t received any stock donations for nearly 2 months and are running out of items to resell. The issue is that whilst they still have lots of interested customers, if there is not sufficient good quality stock available potential customers will stop visiting.

Age UK drivers will collect items FREE OF CHARGE and you also get the satisfaction of knowing that your donations will be resold and that 100% of the profits will go back into supporting local older people. As a UK tax payer, if you gift aid your items (this can be done when the driver collects) this will add another 25p in every pound to the charity.

Please contact 0116 299 2233 if you have any items that you are able to donate. This number is operated Monday-Friday between office hours. Full house clearances are also available.
