Bag a bargain at your local Hospice shop

Did you know? 1/3 of our charitable income comes from our shops and our eBay page

Whether you’ve got a passion for retro fashion, looking for your latest page turner, searching for a designer dress as a wedding guest or a collectable camera to snap those special moments, our stores are full to the brim with items waiting for a new home.

Don’t dump, donate!

If you have holey, stained or tired clothing sitting around, don’t dump it, donate it to us! Last year, we raised £46,738 through donations of rags. This could pay for one bed on our 24-hour Inpatient Unit for 120 days. Simply mark your donation bag as ‘rag’, drop it to your local Garden House Hospice Care shop or Distribution Centre and we’ll do the rest!

Shop volunteers urgently needed

Volunteers play a vital role in the running of our highstreet stores. Last year we logged a whopping 24,460 volunteer hours in our shops and Distribution Centre. Do you have a few hours spare a week and would like to make a real difference? Join our volunteer family today.

Let the transformations begin

Do you have unwanted furniture to donate to the Hospice? The Upcycling House can transform it into something special, turning the unloved to loveable to help raise funds for local hospice care. We will also accept restoration requests, adding sparkle back into your items.

Something old, something new, something pre-loved, something blue

Set in the heart of Hitchin, Bridal House specialises in second-hand bridal dresses, evening and prom wear, Mother of the bride and bridesmaid outfits, with styles and sizes for all. Our team will ensure you look and feel special for every occasion. For more information visit
