Why These Charities

British Heart Foundation & Cancer Research UK

Firstly, unfortunately almost everyone connected to Nationwide House Clearance from the management down to the drivers have family and friends who have in one way or another been affected by heart disease and cancer. Secondly, we all have children or nieces and nephews and thirdly we are all proud of of our brave men and women who serve our country. We are also all animal lovers here at Nationwide. Lastly, as a Newcastle based company, we try our best to support local charities like Food Banks.

Above all else, however, these 8 charities are all great causes and worthy of not only our support, but all of our support.

Other Charities We support

Although we favour the above mentioned charities we don’t have a closed policy with regards to who we do and do not donate to. We have and will continue to donate to other charities. For example we donate bedding and sheets to animal and homeless shelters on a regular basis.

Our Charity Donation Policy

We only donate reusable & recyclable items

When we undertake any house clearance, the first priority is of course to get the property cleared for the customer. However, our second priority is recycling. We will use our experience and judgement and assess what we feel a charity shop will take or not take from any house clearance.

Items we donate to charity

  • Unmarked beds, sofas and other soft furnishings that comply with fire regulations
  • Bedding and sheeting that is in good and clean condition
  • White goods and other electrical items that are in good working order and are clean
  • General house-hold furniture that is in good and solid order
  • Bric-a-brac that isn’t dirty or damaged
  • Clothing, shoes and soft toys that are clean and in good condition

When clearing a property our experienced and trained house clearance men will set aside any items of this nature that exists in the property for later donations to charity. By doing so we not only save on disposal costs which allows us to pass on savings to our customers, we are also helping the environment by minimizing what goes to landfill. Furthermore, our customers feel good knowing they are helping the environment and good causes.

Charities we use

We donate items to reputable, fully registered UK charities only. Charities that benefit the people of England, Scotland and Wales.
