This page is for people who are looking for ways to help the community in somehow... It is easy to find ways of donating money but for some charities the donation of time is far more valuable. Also in this consumer driven times we have become a throw away society. Before you head down to your local recycling centre, check out this page to see if there might be a local charity looking for donations.
If you are a local charity and wish to advertise the need for volunteers or items then please contact us and we will add you to the page.
Bury Hospice Furniture Warehouse
Bury Hospice Warehouse is located at Unit 13, Radcliffe Industrial Estate, Radcliffe, M26 1AD (behind Asda). Contact number - 0161 725 8405
If you are kind enough to donate items for sale they can pick your high quality items of furniture up, however you are also able to take your donations direct to their unit. They will also ask you to Gift Aid your items if you are a UK tax payer this in turn will enable them to claim an extra 25p for every £1 in the selling price of your item.
The warehouse is open Monday to Saturday 9.30-4.30 and Sunday 11am – 4pm.
When you have purchased your furniture we also offer a delivery service for a small fee this can be arranged.
They also look for volunteers to fulfil several roles either in the warehouse or on the sales floor or as a drivers mate-full training would be given. If you are interested in volunteering please call their Volunteer Manager, Sam Duncan on 0161 725 9800.
The shop is able to accept donations of items of furniture (excluding white goods, large tvs and mattresses) household items and bric-a-brac
1000 older people waiting for a friendship call
We know from the older people who have joined The Silver Line – who chose to be called Silver Liners – that just a few minutes of your time can make a big difference.
They’re all about the power of human contact and volunteers are vital to The Silver Line’s commitment to reduce loneliness and isolation, and improve the lives of older people.
The facts are startling:
As a Silver Line volunteer you can bring invaluable skills and experiences, along with the capacity to help make a difference, while being their link to communities and older people across the UK.
They have hundreds of older people who need a Silver Line Friend today.
Could you spare a few minutes every week to be that person to share an experience, enjoy a joke, or just chat with them?
