Donating items to CHAS for Christmas

In advance of Christmas, here’s a small reminder on where we can accept donations and an update on the opening hours for all our retail shops in the lead up to the festive holidays.

Thank you to everyone who has continued to support our CHAS retail shops during the pandemic, we are grateful for the items donated, the support we’ve received and your continued custom. With Christmas approaching, we wanted to update you on how we will be accepting donations over the coming weeks. If you’d like to do some Christmas shopping with us, please see our opening hours at the bottom of this page.


We have contactless donation points at Duloch Park in Dunfermline and Bazaar 1, Kinross. Please call the shops in advance of you trip for advice on how to donate and avoid the disappointment of unnecessary trips.


We have some handy points to keep in mind when thinking about donating:

  • Please be aware that we have very limited space to accept donations as we have a 48 hour quarantine process, in line with Government guidelines
  • Once our daily capacity in the shops has been reached, we will sadly not be able to accept further donations that day and would ask customers to hold on to donations and return another day
  • When visiting any of our shops, please remember to wear a face covering. This is to keep customers and staff safe
  • Please bring goods securely packed in disposable boxes or bags
  • Due to quarantine we regret we won’t be able to return bags, boxes or tubs
  • We are unable to offer house collections at the moment
  • Please don’t leave donations outside the shops
  • And please be aware, we are unable to accept donations at Eastport in Dunfermline and Bazaar 2, Kinross

We understand it’s a difficult time for all, but please be respectful of our staff and volunteers. We very much appreciate your patience and thank you for in advance for your understanding.
