We are always incredibly grateful when we receive donations from our fantastic supporters!
You can drop off your donations at one of our Charity Shops or our site near Wetheral. On site we have a ‘donation drop off point’, open from 10.00am to 4.00pm 7 days a week.

Thank you very much! We host several raffles throughout the year and are very grateful to people for contributing prizes for them. Please bring your raffle prize to our site near Wetheral - Oak Tree Farm, Wetheral Shields, Carlisle, CA4 8JA. We can’t guarantee how much your specific prize will generate in terms of funds, but we find that putting a collection of several prizes together, is the best way to generate interest in our raffles. The likelihood is that your prize will be used as part of a larger raffle alongside several other prizes. Therefore we won’t be able to attribute a specific value to your prize, however we will always aim to announce the collective amount made once the raffle is complete. If you feel you could raise more by hosting a raffle at your place of work, it might be worth considering this as an option. Please contact the Fundraising Team for more information - email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01228 560082 (during our opening hours).

We don't accept medication of any sort. We have had to adopt a blanket policy of not accepting this kind of donation, because of the potential risk this poses to the welfare of the animals we care for (we cannot guarantee that a donation of medication hasn’t been tampered with or stored incorrectly). If you would like to discuss this further, please feel free to email: email@example.com
