The Arches charitable donations delivery

Donating to The Arches

We aim to meet people’s urgent practical needs

We try to help with emergency furniture, household goods and baby equipment for those in emergency situations.

Practical donations

We welcome donations to help us continue to meet the practical needs of our visitors.

A large portion of our donations come from Trent Vineyard church members and the public, occasionally supplemented through our partnerships with other organisations like universities, local councils and businesses.

Donating to our shop:

The Attic sells vintage and retro homeware and furniture, designer clothes and accessories. Sales from The Attic generate funds that we re-invest into The Arches and buy essential furniture or household items to meet the needs of our visitors.


"The Arches provides essential help for individuals and families who feel helpless due to their circumstances with needs they simply cannot meet themselves. They’ve helped people make a fresh start and struggling parents to better meet the needs of their children."
