What is 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 eleven charity shops in Surrey and South West London.

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…twogoodthings are acceptable too!

We have special onegoodthing bags for you to use, to deliver your item to the shops. To get your bag, contact us on 01932 823100 or email.

Donate to one of Shooting Star Children’s Hospices’s charity shops

Making a donation to our charity shops gives you the opportunity to free up some space, show your charitable side and help us to make every moment count for the families we support.

You can donate at any one of our eleven charity shops or at our head office.

Our charity shops are located in Ashford, Chiswick, Fulham, Guildford, Hampton Hill, Shepperton, Teddington, Twickenham, Walton, Weybridge and Whitton and play a vital role in fundraising for Shooting Star Children’s Hospices, raising over £600,000 every year.

All your lovely onegoodthing donations have already helped us raise thousands of pounds, which will go a long way to help the families who rely on our support make every moment count.
