What’s the value of your donation?
We couldn’t survive without the generous donations we receive every day. Everyone who gives deserves the right to know how we use their items. It’s why we’ve created an impact calculatorso you can understand the value – and the impact – of your donations.

Every year millions of unwanted items are sent to landfill, but up to a third could be repurposed and reused to help low-income families. This May the Reuse Network is encouraging households across the UK to give their unwanted household items a second chance, because #Every2ndcounts.
