Wish List

A big Thank You for generous donations in 2018- including a laptop, money towards our roof repairs, a homeopathic first aid kit and pillow protectors.  Everything helps!

MOST NEEDED (updated July 2019)

For the house

Spare pairs of slippers (all sizes)

A large rug

A single bed

Bunk beds for our new family room



If you  can help with any of these just bob us a message. Every little helps 🙂


We could also do with any of these things:

Basic tools – A wood saw, hammer, spanner set, socket screwdriver set.

Printer ink HP 302 – we always need this!

Tea Pot

A good condition vacuum cleaner (ideally handheld)

Map for the Three Peaks walk

Cotton throws for sofas

Waterproof trousers for women


For the garden


Loppers for live branches, pref. telescopic

Bench with storage


Items you could fund raise for

Good quality, new carpet for the hallway, stairs and any of the rooms.

New sofas

If you are thinking of donating and would like it to go towards something specific on our wish list, please let us know when donating cash.

Large items

At times we might welcome a fridge, freezer, cooker and other items of furniture – please contact us first if you are looking for a new home for any of these.

Please email us to check first before bringing us other things you’d like to donate – it’s difficult for us to store things, and then we may have to spend time getting it somewhere else. We will assume that it is OK to pass anything on to someone else who can benefit if we don’t actually need something that has been donated – 4 step ladders can be two too many!

    Hello, would you like a shed for the gatden? il check the measurements, but it is in parts at current as my parents have taken it down,
    but it is a decent shed for storage or potting shed.
    It is wooden and could be painted any color.
    Kind Regards Sarahjane

    1. Hi SarahJane,
      Sorry for the delay in anyone getting back to you 😦
      Please could you phone the house on 01729860207 and let the workers know more details if the shed is still available? Sounds promising – especially if you’re able to deliver? If not, then let them know where it is too, and we might be able to get someone else to pick it up?
      Thanks so much for thinking of us x

    do you still need pots and pans? Anything else kitchen wise needed?

    1. Hi Catriona, I think we are okay for pots and pans at the moment – we do need a blender (not a hand blender) if you happen to be able to get hold of one? We will edit the list to take off a few things which we’ve received just now, thanks for the prompt 🙂
