Get Involved

Here at Link to Hope, we really appreciate all the help we are given. There are so many ways you can help support us and here are some suggestions:

Take part in our Family & Elderly Shoebox Appeal

The Family & Elderly Shoebox Appeal is our biggest campaign that we run every year before Christmas, where we invite people to fill a shoebox with items for a whole family. Each year we deliver around 40,000 shoeboxes! We send out these shoeboxes of gifts to those families who need it most; where a lack of food or fuel makes it a struggle to survive and are a priority above presents. We like to think of each one as a shoebox full of smiles, bringing a little bit of light into families’ lives and letting them know someone is thinking and caring about them. For more details on the Family & Elderly Shoebox Appeal and how to take part please click here.

Donate your unwanted items

We welcome donations of good quality clothing, bric a brac, toys, books and furniture to sell in our Link to Hope shops. You can drop your items into any of our six shops listed here. We also have a furniture team who would be delighted to hear about any furniture you would like to donate and if it's saleable then arrange to pick it up. We can also deliver any larger furniture items bought in any of our shops. This service operates within a 10 mile radius of Worthing. We also do full and part house clearances for which a small fee may apply. Please contact your nearest Link to Hope to arrange a collection. A list of shops can be found here
