Charity donations & gift aid

Donations are our lifeblood and without your generosity, the Lighthouse Furniture Project would not be able to offer the service we do, especially to those in distress and need in Essex and East London. To find out more about making charity donations and gift aid, please get in touch.

Corporate sponsorship

This not only lets you know that you care about the local community, it’s a great way to help us look after low income families across Essex. If you’re a local company who’d like to build brand awareness and support your area, get in touch today.

We’ll be happy to discuss putting plans in place that can help to really showcase your business and improve public perception of you as a corporation.

Donate your time

Help and support come in many forms, and that includes giving your time. We’re always looking for volunteers to help us collect furniture, fix appliances and help with the day to day running of our charity shop in Brentwood.

Visit our volunteers page to find out more about how you can help, about the other people you’ll be working with, and where you can also download and fill out our application form.

Donating furniture

We collect furniture, white goods and household items from the postcode areas in the table FREE of charge and further afield by special arrangement.

We accept most furniture items, provided they are in reusable condition, do not have too much wear and comply with fire safety and Trading Standards regulations along with all sizes of appliances.

Even if they have a fault, we can still accept it as we have engineers that will run tests and fix anything that needs it.
Our team in Essex will also take clean bedding and covers as well as kitchen utensils and crockery as these items get passed on to families in need of support.

Fundraising support

Donations let us help some of the people that need it most. Our donors help us to generate more income which helps us have more of an impact. Fun runs, coffee mornings, school events – whatever kind of fundraising support you want to be involved in, we’re always grateful when our local community gets behind us.

For more information, contact Lighthouse and we can answer any questions you might have.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid is a government scheme that lets us reclaim a basic rate of tax that you pay.

Lighthouse Furniture Project are registered for Gift Aid, so if you’re a UK tax payer, let us know so we can claim it on your donation. It allows us to claim 25p for every £1, so it really can make a difference.
