Our specialists volunteer with the Ecommerce team based in our retail office. The team work together to source, list, pack and dispatch good quality donations. The money raised from the sale of these items helps fund patient care in your local community. We sell on online platforms, including eBay and Vinted, making the most out of every donation, and contribute to the recycling and reuse of pre-loved items, keeping them out of landfill.
We are a busy, and friendly retail team of staff and volunteers, working in a fast-moving environment to meet demanding deadlines.

• advising on a starting price for the appropriate auction site
• restoring and repairing items for sale using specialist skills
