Charities Board

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. If you are facing personal financial difficulties at the moment, please use MSE’s coronavirus guides – they contain all the info we have and are constantly being updated:

Can any charities reuse duvet, pillows and blankets?    I’m in S Devon.   Thanks

    Not a charity thing (or could be) if you are a little cradty make draft excluders out of them for the minter to keep in heat. This could be for personal use or for old people's homes or other charities in your local area

    The RSPCA  and other animal charities near us are grateful for them in this area.(Yorkshire).

    I would definitely suggest giving them to an animal centre of some sort. They will happily take them and will be used towards the care of animals that need it.

    There's a sign in our John Lewis bedding dept that says the contents of old duvets & pillows is reused, but I think just feathers & down.

    Don't know how you donate there though. Looks like maybe they just sell some from something called "Reclaimed"?
    Seen it all, done it all, can't remember most of it.
