Find your local St Oswald's shop

We are looking for all types of clothing, including bags and jewellery, children's toys, small electrical items and TV’s, gym equipment, homeware, CD & DVD's, gifts and accessories.

To book in for a free collection, please contact us by emailing: retailhelpdesk@stoswaldsuk.org or calling 0191 246 8123 and leaving a voicemail message. A member of our team will get in touch with you as soon as possible.

Our team of retail volunteers safely and carefully sort donations into categories such as adult clothing, children’s clothing, books, glassware, and so on.

All clothing is steam cleaned before going on display on the shop floor. Any clothing that is damaged or not suitable for sale is re-cycled and any broken items which cannot be sold are either re-cycled, ‘up-cycled’, or sent to landfill as a last resort.
