Items needed at our hostels
Check out our Wish List to see what we are currently in need of.
We are always grateful for donations. We are currently in great need of Coffee and Toilet Roll. Food donations can be delivered to our Stonepillow Chichester Hostel, St Joseph's, Hunston Road, Chichester, PO20 1NP. Sadly we are now unable to receive home-cooked food unless you hold a current and valid food hygiene certificate for your kitchen.
Do you have good quality furniture or household appliances which you no longer need?
If you live in Chichester, Arun or the surrounding areas, contact Stonepillow Restore by telephone 01243 698547 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can discuss your donations and arrange a collection date with you. Alternatively you can bring your donations to Restore, Unit 3, Plot 27, Terminus Road, PO19 8UE and take the opportunity to browse for hidden treasures!
