Practical Items

We rely on supporters to donate items that enable us to provide healthy and tasty food for clients, and for us to be able to offer clothing, toiletries and sleeping bags through donations on our Hope Today page (see below).

Now that we’re back fully in the Wild Goose, and serving an average of 100 people per day, we are in need of the following food donations please.


Drop offs can be made at 32 Stapleton Road, BS5 0QY on Mondays – Fridays, between 10:30am – 11:30am and 2pm – 3:30pm.

It would be really helpful for you to ring or text ahead so the team can plan deliveries and storage. Andy, Deputy Manager for Provisions, can be contacted on 07815 701611.


UHT milk, Powdered milk.

Dried Herbs: rosemary, thyme, oregano, mixed herbs.

Spices (all spices). Ground Black Pepper.

Other important practical donations are so helpful to our clients, especially in the winter months as they struggle to keep warm and dry. We also have the added challenge of needing PPE to be able to provide service to our clients, and to keep everyone safe. 

You can find the list of needed items that can be bought through our online Give Today shop:

Ordering via our shop reduces the numbers of people visiting to drop off donations, which is very important during the pandemic. It also enables us to plan deliveries and storage.

Thank you so much for supporting those without a place to call home.
