I recently asked the Friends of my “Louise nhm Smith” profile on Facebook if anyone could recommend the best places to take second hand items. (Thank you very much to everyone who responded!)
These were the responses I received. They are in no particular order. Thanks to Shona for putting this post together!
NHM Readers Recommend Local Places for Preloved Items
Wendy said: Spotlight Centre. If you ask they can pass them onto those in need.
Penny said: Spotlight have links with social services and can pass them on but please state that they are to be passed on.
Christ Church, Chineham
Vicki said: If you take them to Christ Church, Chineham we have contact that we can pass them on to one of which is a charity that helps trafficked individuals and has safe houses and refuges amongst its range of support.
Abigail said: Besom have taken loads of my baby clothes and baby items (and other stuff like kitchen goods and bed sheets etc) and they have gone to the women’s refuge. They come and collect and all the stuff goes to people in need rather than just charity and you even get a thank you letter in the post which was a surprise.
Basingstoke Voluntary Action
I have also suggested Basingstoke Voluntary action.
Is there anywhere else you would recommend?
