End of the Rainbow Donation Centre

Donating Household Items and Clothing

If you are also interested in donating household items, then please read the donation criteria below before coming to the donation centre.

Please note that End of the Rainbow Foundation does not have space for storing furniture or bikes. Instead we will accept your pledge of furniture, then match this to a refugee’s need. We can then let you know where and when the donation can be delivered directly to the refugee.

We don’t pick up or deliver any donated item.
