Hastings and Rother Voluntary Association for the Blind have two charity shops where you can donate, browse and purchase secondhand clothing, accessories, household and many usual items.

Our shops are run by a team of volunteers who give up their spare time to support HRVAB.

Both our shops are very different and provide the charity with a much needed source of income. Why not visit both and see for yourself…

We also have an online eBay store where you can purchase rare and beautiful collectible items. For more information, visit our eBay Store page.

How to Donate Items

Our shops rely on the generosity of local people donating clothes and pre-loved items they no longer want. We are also grateful to local and national businesses who donate end of line stock to us. If you own a company that has items to donate, please contact us. You can either bring your unwanted items to your nearest shop or, if you are donating furniture or other large items, we can arrange for these to be collected from your home or another suitable location.

To arrange collection, please call our Bexhill shop on 01424 213154When calling we will give you an morning or afternoon time slot – unfortunately we are unable to provide an exact time.

We also operate a customer viewing service where we visit your home to view larger items for donation, such as furniture, etc. This allows us to confirm that the items are suitable for us to sell and we will confirm a collection date before we leave. Unfortunately there may be occasions where we have to decline a donation and our team will explain the reasons why to you. We hope this will not offend you. We may offer to tip the item for you for a donation to HRVAB.

If you would like HRVAB to benefit from a house clearance, we are happy to make an appointment to firstly view and then collect the items. If you are a solicitor or estate agent, we would be happy to offer this service to you or your clients.

All collections are made by HRVAB with our liveried van. We do not operate a bag drop collection service.
