Turn your clutter into something good for the environment and for people in need.
Our aim is to re-channel 6% of the saleable clothing and other items which currently end up in landfill.
If we can do that, charity shop income will double, helping their important causes.
We can also double the amount of stock to do some good for those who live below the poverty line that rely on charity shops for clothes, children’s toys, furniture and other items.
Have you ever thought how many charity vans might be driving around the same streets collecting items on the same day? We did, and thought we could make things more efficient for charities and easier for donors.
We’ve launched a fleet of Gone for Good vans in Central London, collecting items from multiple people, destined for multiple charities, in a shared and efficient way.
These vans are enabled with the latest technology. You can book a time that suits you straight from our app instead of waiting for a phone call from a charity shop. We take the items from you and deliver them to your local charity shop, hassle free.
All our vans are driven by ex armed forces service men and women so your donation collection will be helping them get a foothold into civilian employment and be paid a Living Wage.
If you’re in London in a participating area you can book a collection now by choosing Mind, YMCA, Cats Protection, Children’s Air Ambulance, Royal Trinity Hospice, Shaw Trust, or Barnardo’s in the app. We’ve given those charities a little GFG van icon to make them easy to spot.
Support local charities looking for donations in your area.
Take a photo of your pre-loved item from your phone’s camera so your charity knows what to expect.
Your chosen charity will collect your item(s), direct from your door.
Opt in to Gift Aid with a tap and your charity gets more at no extra cost to you.
When your charity knows what to expect, you reduce the chances of your donation being lost or stolen.
Tell your Facebook friends and family about your donation and encourage them to give too.
