Unfortunately, our shop is currently closed to due to the new lockdown rulings, but we are lucky enough to have a volunteer who is offering a click & collect service on our behalf.
We are also offering allocated days & times when you can drop off any donations at the shop as donations must NOT be left outside the shop at any other times as they will have to be disposed of at our cost.
This donations window is done under Covid safe conditions, with no entry to shop itself and the same process is used for collections for items bought on our Facebook page to protect all concerned.
Please go the the Coningsby dog rescue charity shop Facebook Page to find out more.
We welcome every single donation but unfortunately we can only accept clean, saleable & undamaged items.
We do take clothes & footwear that are in good condition, craft items, bedding , curtains, kitchen and other household items, books, complete jigsaws & games and more.
WE DO NOT TAKE , underwear unless new , pillows, duvets, torn, tatty or dirty clothes, crockery that is chipped or cracked , kids scooters or bikes unless they are in very good condition. NO video cassettes, electrical items unless in full workig order & they can be PAT tested or any items not fit to be sold.
Any donations left outside while the shop is closed, is classed as fly tipping & we cannot use these items due to not knowing what's happened to them during our closed hours.
This then costs us money in removal, money we would rather be putting towards the dogs. It's also a massive inconvenience to our volunteers valuable time & eats into the cost of running the rescue, to which the shop was set up to help.
This is a knock on effect of Covid regulations and being a small shop with limited space.
Our wonderful volunteers at the shop do a brilliant job, so please be considerate & help us follow guidelines.
We hope you will show some concideration & only drop off at the allocated times that can be found on the shops facebook page.

Finally, THANK YOU & we really do value your support during these very testing times of Covid 19 & it is the dogs at Coningsby Rescue that truly are the focus of all our hearts in the end.
