    Oxfam - M&S 5 voucher 2nd Oct 17 at 5:22 PM
    Oxfam Mold refused to take a M&S linen skirt today and exchange it for the M&S voucher. They said it wouldn't sell in their shop! It was a plus size linen skirt in beige and a wardrobe staple.
    I googled but could not find any T&C describing that they can do this?

    They know what will and won't sell. It's a charity shop - try another branch when you are next visiting friends or whatever.

    Sounds as if they were politely telling you the condition didn't comply with the final bit of this part of the T&Cs:

    This offer does include donations of M&S bras, but does not include donations of swimwear, underwear, socks or damaged or soiled items.

    Can someone tell me how this works please? I have some clothes from M&S which I was going to take to Oxfam. Is there a time and amount limit?
    Thank you.
