onegoodthing

We want to make sure our lovely charity shops are packed full of fabulous things. That’s why we’re asking you to donate onegoodthing to be sold in one of our charity shops in Surrey and South West London.

Our charity shops play a vital role in fundraising for Shooting Star Children’s Hospices, raising over £600,000 every year. Each onegoodthing donation helps to increase the quality of merchandise in our shops, which in turn helps to raise money for our vital care services.

Your donation will make a huge difference to the babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families, that we support. It costs £10 million a year just to maintain our current care service but we know there are many more families in desperate need of our help.

So please donate what you can, and don’t feel you have to stick to one…two good things are acceptable too!
