Thank you for all your support.
As seen on Dragons Den; think of Thrift+ as an online charity shop crossed with eBay – let them do the hard work and raise vital funds for our lifesaving cause at the same time!
All you need to do is sign up on the Thrift+ website, selecting Magpas Air Ambulance as your chosen charity. From there, they will send you a bag or box to fill with all of your good quality, but unwanted clothes and accessories and drop it off at a selected Post Office.
Thrift+ will then sell these items on their website, the sale of which is split three ways – 1/3 to Thrift+, 1/3 to Magpas Air Ambulance and 1/3 to you! OR, if you’re feeling extra generous you can opt for your share to also be donated to Magpas Air Ambulance and we will receive 2/3 of every item sold.
It’s that easy! So what are you waiting for? Sign up today.
