Wish List

A big Thank You for generous donations in 2017- including a laptop, money towards our roof repairs, a homeopathic first aid kit and pillow protectors.  Everything helps!

MOST NEEDED (updated January 2018):

Building and decorating materials, skills and labour are still needed for the continued refurbishment of the Workers’ Accommodation.  Please get in touch via management@hortonwhc.org.uk if you can contribute.

For the house

Easy to operate tin opener


Mattress and pillow protectors

DVD player

A good condition vacuum cleaner


Record turntable, CD player & speakers

Map for the Three Peaks walk

Decent waterproof trousers – adults and children.

Light shades

Shampoo, bath & shower gels


For the garden

Petrol strimmer

Loppers for live branches, pref. telescopic

Grass shears

Poly tunnel of any size

Any edible plants and seeds, inc herbs (especially perennials)

Plastic green house and small propagators

Bench with storage

A small touring caravan in good condition

Items you could fund raise for

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

We also need double glazing for the coach house project, about £5000-£6000.

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 🙂
