How to Sell Pre-Loved Items for Charity
Sell your items online and help raise money for our services. There's various channels you can sell your items through so it's easier than ever to advertise your items.
Your Fundraising Pack
If you’ve had the opportunity to declutter, why not turn your pre-loved items into much needed cash to fund our lifesaving services?
List on eBay, Depop and other preloved sites or local Facebook Marketplace groups and donate a portion of your earnings to The Air Ambulance Service. Make it clear you’ll be donating to charity through the sale and it’s a win-win; your pre-loved items are given a new lease of life, directed away from landfill, and both you and your buyer will feel great that the money raised is going to help towards an extremely worthy cause.
Choose your site
If using a pre-loved site like Gumtree, Amazon or Facebook Marketplace then set up your sale as you normally would within their user guidelines.
Photograph your items
Take some really nice photos of your items which are clear and show as many angles as needed to showcase the item. Think about your background – if you can have a blank, bright backdrop and nothing too busy this will work best.
Write your description
Be as descriptive as possible with your listings to make sure the buyer has as much information as they can about your item and the condition that it is in. This is your opportunity to really sell it!
Don’t forget to mention that you will be donating a percentage of your sale to charity.
Total up your sales
Once you have made all of your sales, items have been posted and you have your final amount, then pop over to our website and make your donation online.
