Gifts in Kind

Gifts in Kind are what we call ‘as-new’ donations that we receive from businesses. This could be anything from clothing, accessories and toys, to homeware, and much more.

We have a team who make the process easy for businesses to donate stock, before ensuring the goods are transported to our store network for our customers to buy.

Benefit your business and support Barnardo’s

Donating goods to Barnardo’s is a great way for businesses to dispose of returns and end of line stock, whilst freeing up space for new ranges. It also reduces waste, and prevents the use of landfill.

In addition, donating to Barnardo’s shows your customers and colleagues that you care.

Your donations will enhance your Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy – inarguably an important part of every business’s agenda.

Gifts in Kind are a tax-efficient way of supporting Barnardo’s. If you donate goods that your business makes or sells, you can claim the cost of these goods in your business accounts. Please find more information at HMRC’s website.

Have stock to donate but no transport?

We have drivers nationwide and would be delighted to pick up any items that you may have. We have experience of collecting from branches and warehouses, and will remove any labels or packaging if required, to keep the cost of donating to a minimum.

Help us to raise funds more effectively

Gifts in Kind can help save valuable resources and enable us to fundraise even more effectively, resulting in even more money being invested into our vital work with vulnerable children and young people. 

Through our vast network of over 700 shops across the UK, we sell a wide range of items from clothing, accessories and homeware, to toys, games, books and entertainment.
