Donate a Gift

We welcome donations from the general public and businesses as the items can help support people we work with. Donations should be new, or if second hand should be clean and in very good condition. Items can be dropped off at our day centre on any weekday from 9.30am – 4.30pm or weekends from 9am – 1pm.

We are located at 12 Adelaide Street (WC2N 4HW) which is five minutes’ walk from Charing Cross Station.
If you are planning on bringing a large amount of donations please contact Lance Kuhn in the Fundraising Team first on 020 7766 5555 / lance.kuhn@cstm.org.uk as our storage space is limited.
Thank you.

There are 3 types of donations we need…

Everyday items

    I’m afraid we are unable to accept used bedding

  • new underwear and socks
  • trainers, size 8-10
  • kitchen shoes / construction shoes, size 8-10
  • casual / sports clothing, large sizes
  • belts / cuff links
  • toiletries, travel-size
  • black clothing for work (T-shirts / polo shirts / shirts / trousers)

85% of our clients are male, so we will need more donations for men than for women.

We are currently looking for funding to create a bursary with which to buy Primark Vouchers – this will give clients more control over what they buy and increase their confidence and self-esteem. If you can help with this, please contact sonja.ashbury@cstm.org.uk / 0207 766 5555.

Christmas

    We ask that all items are new, not second-hand. It is nice to receive something special at Christmas so we never hand out second hand items! Please donate unwrapped. Thank you.

    • chocolates (non-liquor)
    • books
    • nice toiletry gift sets (aftershave / perfume)
    • leather belts
    • baseball hats
