Unused items such as clothes and even cars can be used to support our work

Thrift+A rack of clothes

Donate and shop second-hand clothes with Thrift+.

Thrift+ was founded to make the charity shopping experience as good as the best online clothes retailers, Thrift’s vision is to help you turn your unwanted clothing into donations for charity, and to help stop fashion waste by making it easier to re-sell than to discard and ensuring fewer clothes end up in landfill.

It’s simple to get started: order a Thrift bag, fill it up with clothing and return the bag. Coach Core will receive a minimum of £1 per sale, though the donation could be as much as 66% of the sale.


Recycling for Good Causes

Recycling for Good Causes works with over 5000 charities and organisations. Because of the scale of their operation and large network of buyers, they are able to create income for us from your unwanted items such as:

  • Jewellery & watches: gold, silver, costume jewellery, watches, broken, damaged and any odd items
  • Currency: any coins or banknotes, UK & foreign, including out of circulation currency

To send your jewellery and banknotes for recycling simply use your own envelope or jiffy bag (no bigger than A5) and post free of charge by printing out this freepost label and attaching to your envelope. Please do not send coins to the freepost address as the postage costs will far outweigh your donation.

If you have more items than will fit into an A5 sized envelope for us, then please call 0800 633 5323 or email to find out more information on their polybag / sack recycling projects where you can recycle larger items.

Donate a car

Do you have an unwanted car? You can scrap it through Giveacar, a not-for-profit social enterprise that turns your old cars, light vans, motorbikes and even caravans into cash.

They arrange free collection, and then depending on your car’s condition sell it at auction or scrap it, with the proceeds raised (minus the service fees) going directly to Coach Core. It’s so easy.
