Emmaus Burnley is a charity that is reliant on the goodwill and kind donations of our local supporters. The money raised from the sale of these items in our Rochdale store is used to support people with experience of homelessness in Lancashire and Greater Manchester. Find out more about our community at our homelessness charity here.
We are happy to accept donations of most household items but there are some exceptions for either legal, practical or environmental reasons. This includes soft furnishings without a fire label, safety items, baby equipment or any item that is not in a good, saleable condition. Please note: items must be in a clean, useable condition that we can display in our stores and that this up to the driver’s discretion.
Where possible we would encourage you to drop-off donations when our charity store is open. Alternatively, for larger furniture items, we do offer a free collection service. If you are unsure whether an item you are donating is currently being accepted, please speak to a member of our team, either at our shops or by calling 0330 058 4264.
