We’re struggling at the moment with the huge volumes of messages we’re getting from Forumites about coronavirus and the impact it’s having on their finances. We’re a small team, with limited resources, but we’re doing our best to manage this spike in demand.

At this time, please note the Charities Board should only be used by registered charities and not include personal posts. I’m afraid we will have to delete any posts that aren’t from a registered charity.

Sending Parcels for Charities

I've recently starting working at a local charity where my work includes sending a number of parcels of various shapes, sizes and weights, mainly for EBay. I had no idea how expensive sending parcels can be and was told that none of the big parcel delivery companies appear to make this available free of charge (do they not get tax concessions?).
Does anyone know of any delivery companies that do allow free posting for charities?
This is my first MSE posting and I appreciate any help you can give, thanks
