We accept donations of bikes, some types of musical instrument, and money!
Incomplete bikes, parts, accessories and tools may also be useful.
NEW - you can now sell an item on eBay and automatically donate 10% to 100% of your final selling price to Common Wheel (minimum £1).
You can also add Gift Aid if you are a UK taxpayer.
You get an eBay fee credit on your donations (e.g. if you donate 10% eBay will waive 10% of your fees, or for 100% all the fees are waived ).

We are always happy to receive donations at any branch. It's best to telephone first to check opening times. We don't often collect bikes, but may be able to do so.
We are particularly keen on good older bikes. A bike that has lasted ten years or more is probably good quality and will give many more years of service.
Bikes originally sold by specialist bike shops are the easiest to re-use.
We are particularly keen on Dawes bikes. Any lightweight (Claude Butler, Holdsworth, Carlton, Raleigh Lightweight etc) will be greatly appreciated and sold to someone who will love it and look after it.
Anything we can't use ourselves, we will pass on to someone who can.
If you are looking to upgrade your old bike, we sometimes offer a trade in allowance.
Details of where we are and opening times are here.
Straightforward donations of money are always welcome. Please click here for further information.
