Donate items to a DEBRA shopDonate your preloved outfits today!

Our charity shops sell a range of affordable quality items including clothing, furniture, electrical items, books, homeware and bric-a-brac. Your donations can make a huge difference to people with EB and your community:

  • Help fund life-changing support services and research to find a cure for EB
  • Protect our planet by preventing your unwanted items from going to landfill
  • Enable your community to buy affordable quality pre-loved goods
  • Make an even bigger difference by allowing us to claim Gift Aid on the sale of your items

As a keen re-cycler and collector of all things vintage, my local DEBRA shop has been a regular favourite of mine for some years.

Donating your items to our charity shops

Please call your local shop and arrange to drop off your donations in the designated drop off area in-store. This may differ from store to store. Please do not leave any donations outside the front of our stores when we are closed, as items left this way may be damaged and not fit for re-sale.

We are unable to accept all items, so please see our list of items we do not sell before donating.

    The fight to cure EB

    At DEBRA, we can’t change the future of epidermolysis bullosa (EB) in an instant. But we do know that an instant can help change the future of people on a life-long journey with EB.

    We believe that anyone can effect change with one small action:

    • A single coin spent in one of our charity shops could…
    • Help fund the development of practical resources, that help…
    • Encourage even more people to learn about EB and its impact, compelling them to…
    • Spread the word about the disease, our shops, and initiatives, which…
    • Increases interest and investment into our services and medical research, which…
    • Gives us a larger opportunity to develop and expand the DEBRA offering, which means…
    • Even more people with EB can access support and comfort when they need it the most.

    DEBRA membersLet us never underestimate the simple things we can do to spread ripples of hope for people living with EB.

    Let us all take one small action to fight EB so that, one day, EB no longer has any fight left to give.

    #SpreadYourWings to help us begin… the DEBRA effect.
