We are happy to say that we have three popular charity shops in Leicestershire, selling everything from clothing, to electrical and homeware goods.

All of the money raised from these shops goes directly into Woodside to help continue our work with caring, rehoming, and educating. This wouldn’t be possible without the kind donations from people like you.

Donations We Accept

All donations must be clean, usable and of sale-able quality. If you wouldn’t buy it, then we probably won’t be able to sell it! The better the quality of your items, the more money we can raise from their sale.

We are always looking for:

  • Clothing
  • Books, Records, DVD and other media.
  • Soft Furnishings
  • Furniture (Certain Shops Only)
  • Electrical Items
  • Homeware & Bric a Brac
  • Crockery, Glassware, & Kitchen Utensils

Donations We Can’t Accept

Due to regulations, we cannot sell anything that would be unsafe for someone to buy – anything that is broken, dangerous, unhygienic, where its safety cannot be proven, or it would be illegal for us to sell. Please do not bring these items to us as we will have to incur costs for their disposal.
In particular, we can’t accept:

  • medication, solvents, used dentures, jewelry for pierced body-parts, and cosmetics
  • food or drink, poisonous, toxic or hazardous substances, tobacco
  • wheelchairs, bicycles, wheeled chair conveyances, such as prams
  • toys (non-CE marked), nightwear or upholstered furniture items that don’t have the relevant safety labels
  • firearms, ammunition, blades, weapons, or realistic toy weapons

Support what we do

Although Woodside Animal Centre is proud to be part of the independent RSPCA branch network, we would like to emphasise that we are an independently funded branch that depends on the generosity of donations.

By supporting us, you could help us to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home an animal in Leicestershire today.
