January 2017



We are very grateful for time, financial and physical donations to yourSanctuary, which helps us to support families and children who have experienced domestic abuse.  All items donated are used throughout the year.   

For Christmas 2016 we were very grateful to have short term donated use of a storage facility; however for most of the year we are extremely limited on space.   As a result please be aware that we have reviewed our foreseeable needs and are currently able to accept only the following items which must all be in a NEW, UNUSED condition.


CLEANING MATERIALS – polish, Cif, bathroom spray, J cloths, floor cleaner, washing up liquid, laundry powder, etc


VOUCHERS - for food & clothing shops of any value.   (We particularly appreciate £10 ARGOS vouchers as these can be used to top up volunteer mobiles for supporting helpline clients)


CASH DONATIONS   -   e.g. just a £7 cash donation will cover a fresh welcome pack for a newly arriving family in refuge – comprising: milk, butter, bread, cheese, eggs


We are able to receive the above items via our office address at 15a Monument Way East, Woking GU21 5LY Mon – Fri during office hours.  Please phone Michelle beforehand on 01483 776868 (to ensure that we have both space & staff to receive these).

In addition:

Supporters can help us raise funds by recycling unwanted second-hand clean clothing, shoes, hand bags, belts, bras and soft toys (no bigger than shoe box size).

Please take unwanted items to Anglo-Recycling Monday to Saturday 9.30am-5pm & Sunday 10am-4pm. Address: 25 Lyon Road, Hersham KT12.  When handing in items please collect 40p per kilo which we would love to receive as a cash donation instead.

Thank you very much indeed for supporting us

*Please be aware that on occasion we find ourselves with surplus items.   In this instance we arrange for transfer to other charitable causes within the North West Surrey area.
