Donating - 2nd Hand Goods, Tools etc
There are a couple of local outlets for 2nd hand goods, tools, stamps, books etc.
2nd Stop Charity Shop
The shop accepts clean, good quality clothes, books, toys, crockery, ornaments, DVD's, CD's and small items of furniture. They are unable to accept electrical goods, video and audio tapes, cycle helmets, child car seats and pushchairs.
The funds raised by this shop are used by SPort, Amenities, Recreation in Kesgrave (SPARK) to fund projects in Kesgrave.
Foxhall Reuse Shop
Working in partnership with Suffolk County Council, FCC Environment and The Benjamin Foundation run a re-use shop based at Foxhall Household Waste Recycling Centre. Proceeds from the shop are used to support The Benjamin Foundation which is charity that operates in Norfolk and Suffolk supporting people through the challenges that life may bring them, including homelessness, childcare, bullying and abuse.
The shop sell's items suitable for re-use that would otherwise be recycled or disposed of from seven of the 11 HWRCs across Suffolk. This includes furniture, toys, bicycles, books, electrical items and more! All items will be checked and tested in order to be re-sold.
Why not pop in, donate an item or grab yourself a bargain?
Don't throw it away, give it away! Got stuff you don't need? We'll find someone to come and take it. Looking for something? We'll pair you with someone giving it away. All completely free. Freegle: it's like online dating for stuff.
Tools with a Mission (TWAM)
TWAM is a Christian Charity whose mission is to collect unwanted tools, knitting and sewing machines, computers, stationary items etc, refurbish them, sort them into trade kits and send them across the world to enable people to earn a living and support themselves and their families. They send around 20 containers filled with over 300 tonnes of tools every year. Ipswich is the headquarters and refurbishment centre.
Used Stamps and old coins – Can you help?
Kesgrave Library is a drop off point for used stamps and old coins.
These are collected by one of its customers and sold to help raise funds for St Elizabeth’s Hospice.
Just cut out around the stamp on the envelope and bring them along and post in our collection point.
