Charity Shops

Help support Dame Hannahs by donating to and visiting our charity shops in Devon & Cornwall

All our shops have now re-opened!

Since the Coronavirus pandemic hit and forced the closure of our shops Dame Hannahs has lost a considerable amount of money from this vital fundraising activity. However we are now in a position where all of our Charity Shops have reopened all be it on some reduced hours.

Did you know that there are 11,200 shops in the UK, which amounts to an astounding £29 million a week being raised for amazing causes with Dame Hannahs being one of them. Due to current Coronavirus pandemic Dame Hannahs along with all other charities have had to cancel the majority of our fundraising activities for the balance of this year and into 2021 with no end in sight but you can still help us now by shopping in our amazing stores.

Below you will find a list of of our stores, along with their current opening times. These times may continue to change as more people return to volunteer which will enable us to extend our opening hours or we may need to reduce these times should further restrictions or shielding categories be re-introduced. These are worrying times for us all but we are striving to deliver the best possible service to our communities within the constraints we find ourselves in. If you would like to consider volunteering in one of our shops please either contact a shop direct or complete the application form which is available to download at the bottom of this page.

If you would like to donate to our stores you will find some great tips below.

Thank you for your continued support, your support really does make a difference!

Donating Your Pre-Loved Items

Your pre-loved items can be donated directly into our Charity Shops but only during the set opening hours. Only then can they be processed in accordance with current guidelines so they can become of use to someone else, and raise much-needed cash which we desperately need.

Please DO NOT leave donations on doorsteps as our staff are not able to take them in while our stores are closed, rendering them either ruined by the weather or stolen, and this would also be considered as fly-tipping by the local authorities.

While many of us continue to spend more time at home in these uncertain times it is an opportune time to have a leisurely spring clean and declutter. This can be a cathartic task in addition to supporting your local disability charity.

One of the benefits of donating your pre-loved items is that it will raise money for amazing causes, which in these unprecedented times, is more important than ever.

Don’t know where to start with your clear out? Here are some top tips:

1. Organisation is the key
Write ‘Keep’, ‘Throw’ and ‘Donate’ on three pieces of paper and create clear piles of what you will keep, throw away (responsibly, of course!) and put aside to donate to charity.

2. Is it functional?
Ask yourself, does this item have a purpose? Is it useful in your everyday life? If not, consider whether it adds value in other ways. If it doesn’t, it could be time to set it aside.

3. Have you used/looked at/worn it in the last year?
We often keep things out of habit, and sometimes we simply stop ‘noticing’ items and objects because they have been there for so long. Be ruthless and take each item and really think, have you used/looked at/worn it in the last year? If the answer is ‘no’, then what are the chances that you will in the next year. Could this item be repurposed? Or given a new home?

4. Does it fit you?
It won’t be the first time, and it probably won’t be the last either, but sometimes we buy clothes that we promise ourselves to slim in to, and never actually get around to committing to it. These clothes remain unworn hanging in wardrobes for aeons. Give them a new lease of life, and let go of the guilt and pressure surrounding that particular item. Another slightly depressing wardrobe fact is that we naturally outgrow clothes as our bodies change shape with time. Try on your entire collection and see what comfortably fits – if there’s a few things which are a little too tight, or a little too big, consider altering them or adding them on the ‘donate’ pile.

5. Does it spark joy?
In Marie Kondo’s words, ‘does it give you that little spark of happiness?’ If the answer is ‘no’ then you know what to do!

6. Could it benefit someone else? Could someone else make use of it?
Take on another perspective when having a clear out – consider each item, and if you aren’t using/wearing it, could someone else? Is there any life/wear left in the item that someone else could enjoy?

When you do drop the items to our Charity Shops please ensure that all of your items are either bagged or boxed as our staff are not able to process them for 48 hours after they are donated so they can be kept safe from any potential hazards. Also check that your chosen shop is accepting donations. With the delay in processing not all of the shops will be able to take donations as usual due to storage space.

Please also note that we are currently unable to arrange deliveries or collections so everything needs to be direct donation in store.
