Donations for Cancer Research UK

Donate the items you no longer need to Cancer Research UK when you move house.

We have partnered with Cancer Research UK to transform the items you no longer need into funds for life-saving research through our Donation Station initiative.

This is an initiative by which you can donate your unwanted items including clothing and homewares to Cancer Research UK, who will then go on to sell them in their shops. Each bag you donate equates to an average of £23.

100% of profit from selling these items goes towards Cancer Research UK’s life-saving work.

Call into or call your local Hamptons International branch if you’d like to know more about this initiative or would like them to send you some Donation Station bags.

Thank you for your donation.

Step One: Bag it up!

Simply bag or box up the homeware and clothing that you no longer need.

Step Two: Make sure...

Make you sure you haven't packaged any items that we are unable to take. To find out what you can and can't bag up, see below.

Step Three: Fill out the pick-up form

Arrange a pickup of 8 or more bags. If you have less than 8 bags, take these items down to any Cancer Research UK shop.

Following completion of the form, Cancer Research UK will contact you to organise when best suits to come and pick up your donations. Please allow 24 hours for Cancer Research UK to get in touch with you and 5 working days for collection of bags.
