Declutter & Donate

Sign up to Declutter & Donate to help us to continue to provide our free ‘home away from home’ accommodation to families across the UK, helping to ease emotional and financial burdens of having a child in hospital.

Help families be near their ill child in hospital!

Your Declutter & Donate will not only give you a great sense of achievement for tidying up a bedroom, office, garden, garage or shed but could make a real difference for families with children in hospital.

Making your Declutter & Donate a Success!

Step 1. Getting started

Get the whole family involved, get some tunes playing and make a day of it.

Do the kids have a mountain of toys they no longer use? Are your CD and DVD collections taking up space and gathering dust in your living room? Is your garage or loft bursting at the seams?

You could even challenge your friends and family to do the same to see who can raise the most!

We have produced a leaflet which includes top tips and FAQs to help you get started and make it a success

Declutter & Donate Leaflet.


Step 2. Use an online platform

Think about where you can sell on any items from your declutter so you can categorise as you go along. There are plenty of ways to sell your unwanted items online with minimal hassle!

Facebook Marketplace and eBay are often easiest for selling furniture and household items, and you can choose between local collection or arrange delivery.

Music Magpie and Ziffit both accept CD’s, DVD’s, as well as games, books, and tech. They also sort shipping!

Step 3. Talk about why you are doing it

Let people know what you are doing and that you’re supporting Ronald McDonald House Charities UK! Here is a poster you can use to share – Poster

They might be willing to pay a bit more if they know you’re fundraising for a charity.

If you need some talking points, or have questions, get in touch at info@rmhc.org.uk!

Step 4. Paying in your raised funds

You can pay in your funds directly to us on our website at www.rmhc.org.uk/donate. Make sure to select ‘Fundraising from an event’ and write in ‘Declutter & Donate’ into the box below.

Or if you prefer you can set up a JustGiving page for your Declutter & Donate and share it with colleagues, family and friends – and the funds will come direct to us – link below!

Your support changes lives

The best medical care for your child isn’t always close to home, and families often find themselves travelling long distances to be with their child in hospital.
Our 12 Houses across the UK give families a warm and comfortable place to rest, eat and relax, just moments away from their child’s hospital ward. Our support is invaluable to families at a critical time in their lives.
