Cheese & Grain donation drop begins!

So pleased to let you know that for the month of February we’re going to be holding donation drops every Monday lunchtime at the Cheese & Grain!


This iconic and action packed building is for many at the very heart and soul of Frome, and so we’re very much looking forward to introducing new people to the work that RAISE does, and hopefully we’ll bring more people in to see the many wonderful things going in in the Cheese & Grain too! We will be accepting clothing for men, women and children, blankets, sleeping bags, and smaller items like toiletries, footwear, walking sticks. Our volunteers will be in the cafe near reception.

You can ONLY leave  your donations at the Cheese & Grain on Monday lunchtimes between 12.00 and 14.00.

For donations at other times during the week, and for larger items (like wheelchairs and zimmer frames), we ask that you take donations to Storagebase in Cornbrash full address and opening times here.

Please note we will no longer be accepting donations on Monday afternoons at Your Storage Space in Wallbridge (although we are still sorting and packing there).

      Hi Charlotte – thanks for your message. We don’t have a date yet, as we don’t know when our donation drop venues will re-open. We did hold a one-off tent, sleeping bag and blanket donation drop recently, and hope to repeat this in September, if we are not able to reopen by then. Any updates and special events will be posted in our facebook group, which you can find here:

      Hi Suzanne – I’m afraid we don’t have a date yet. I gather that the Cheese & Grain is hoping to reopen in October, but current guidance is that donations need to be left for 3 days before sorting & packing, and we have no storage space to do this. Also the regional warehouse in Taunton where we send nearly all our donations is not properly open yet, and is only accepting donations for France, which is a minority of what we collect. I will put an update on our website as soon as I am able.
