Giving Goods or Money
Thank you for wanting to give your goods or money through The Besom in Witney.
Here are some of the ways you can give.
Furniture that has been kindly donated will be passed on to clients free of charge. Our van team are happy to pick up and deliver the goods.
Please be aware that we only accept quality items in good condition, and things such as beds or sofas must have a "Fire safety label". Email us with details or ideally send us a photo.
Also, please note that we don't accept donations of heavy "white goods" such as fridges or washing machines.
Our bedding packs comprise duvets, sheets, towels, pillows and pillow cases.
We will be happy to accept these items in a clean, good condition.
We put together kits of common and essential kitchen items, such as cutlery, crockery, saucepans, and cleaning products. These kits go to people in need who will be moving into new accommodation.
We provide some clients with regular food packs, assembled by our team from donated food items.
We can't accept any perishable food but we welcome any donations of tinned foodstuff, dry foods (e.g. rice or pasta) and day-to-day provisions such as jam, tea or instant coffee, ideally with a long expiry date.
We also provide some clients with donated supplies of essential personal toiletry items such as toothpaste, deodorant, shower gel, shampoo or sanitary supplies.
We accept items that would be useful to new mums, all made up into a beautifully presented pack.
Items include bodysuits, socks, hats, mittens, bibs, blankets, disposable nappies, hooded bath towels, bath lotion, sponges, cotton wipes and toys.
If you would like to give these, please let us know.
We accept donations of children's clothing that's in good, clean condition. These are given in packs to parents and their children.
The core team of the Besom in Witney are all time-givers. However, there are running costs such as rent for our premises and maintenance of our van.
If you would like to contribute to these costs or pay for specific items for our recipients, please get in touch by email.

If you're a tax payer, please enable us to enhance your donation with "Gift Aid". Thank you!
