Ways to donate
The success of our shops depends entirely on the generous donations of quality goods. So when you’re clearing out your wardrobe or getting rid of the contents of your home, bring your good quality clothes, jewellery, books, china, bric-a-brac, toys and home furnishings to your local St Andrew’s Hospice shop.
Donations are always welcome and all proceeds help us to provide specialist palliative care services for local people living in North and South Lanarkshire.
