Donate Goods

The Wellspring is always learning more about the best ways to help the people we reach. This allows us to understand how people can support us through practical donations of goods, food, and clothing.

We are continually assessing what items are most important to make sure your donations will be the most effective for our service users.

Our Amazon Smile Wish List is the simplest and quickest way for you to donate goods to us. Visit our Amazon Smile Wish List to learn more and start giving now.

We are aware that some of our supporters still prefer to drop their donations to us directly. If this is something that you would like to do then see the lists below for what we currently need.

It is important to note that we do not accept duvets, pillows, furniture, or household items. If these are ever required we will create a specific campaign to let our supporters know.

How To Donate

Every donation is a wonderful way of helping The Wellspring change lives.

We rely on the help of our fantastic volunteers to organise the logistics of these donations and make sure someone is always here to meet you. It is therefore important that we can arrange the most suitable time for drop offs.

People can donate food or clothes anytime during opening times.
Monday – Friday 8:30am to 3:30pm. Weekends and Bank Holidays 8:30am to 2pm.
We would ask that lunch sessions from 12:30pm to 1:30pm are avoided.

If your donation is particularly large we would ask you to call or contact us beforehand to arrange the most suitable date and time:

You can contact us on 0161 477 6344 or email

One of our team will help you as soon as possible to ensure your donation is booked in.
