About Donations to Action Cancer
Condition of Goods
All items must be saleable.
We cannot repair any items unfortunately.
Fire and Safety Labels
Sofas, beds, dining chairs with cushions and anything upholstered must have a fire safety label. The label will read ‘Complies with 1988 Regulations’ or may show a cigarette with a line through it. All items that date from before 1950 are exempt.
Electrical Goods (no more than 5 years old)
Kitchen appliances and large televisions can be collected, but they must be plugged in and working when the driver collects, due to the high cost of disposal.
We usually collect from postcodes ranging from BT 1 through to BT 20 and BT 22, BT 23, BT 27, BT 28, BT34, BT36, BT38, BT39, BT4 and BT80. This does not rule out other areas, and we may be able to make collections from other areas depending on the items offered.
Please remember the cost involved
The value of the goods must offset the cost of the collection. Although we appreciate small items, we cannot always collect.
Can you Gift Aid the item?
Action Cancer is participating in Gift Aid on donations of items. This allows us to raise another 25% on all your donations. If you are a UK taxpayer and sign up for Gift Aid we can claim up to 25p in the pound back from the UK taxman.
