news > 28/09/2016 - Christmas Appeal

We are launching our Christmas appeal for your unwanted surplus and end of line stock that is no longer required.

Christmas-time is when our partner charities find that people in the UK are most desperate for life essential items, and we rely on businesses like yours to help and provide support.

Last year we redistributed 551,937 items, all brand new surplus goods from UK businesses that needed to be disposed of by business. This saved those businesses 2,839 tonnes of CO2 which in turn increased their emissions allowances while reducing their environmental impacts. That’s the equivalent of 946 million plastic bags.

We distributed to 281,677 people across the UK last year, with our biggest beneficiary groups being children and families on low incomes.  However we support a wide range of people in need through our charity partners. We sustain cancer patients, the homeless, elderly people with disabilities, women fleeing from domestic violence, as well as tackling hidden poverty in our communities. We also support vulnerable and isolated people who are admitted to hospital at no notice to an Emergency Unit without clothing and essentials for their stay.

Aside from clothes, toiletries, household cleaning products and life essentials that make incomes stretch further; we take anything and everything, and over the years have been really imaginative about how surplus is used by our partner charities. We’ve taken giant rolls of cleaning lint, which animal charities used as bedding; we’ve taken millions of CD’s that wouldn’t play that were used in art projects, and we’ve taken reams and reams of paper and art materials which were distributed to children’s charities and schools in areas with high levels of deprivation.

If you have new goods to donate to us, please contact us at We can save businesses landfill tax, transportation and storage costs as well as making a difference to the 13.4 million people living in poverty in the UK.
