The Retail Hub is easy to find. It is just a short drive from junction 37 of the M1 and a five-minute walk from Dodworth train station. It is just over the road from KDA Wholesale which is well signposted from the main road too. For SAT NAV use S75 3LS. Free parking is available.
We’re open 9am – 4pm Monday – Saturday. Closed Sunday. Call 01226 240908.
(Donations are appreciated at our adjacent Donation Centre 10am – 2pm Monday-Saturday. Closed Sunday.)
Hundreds of pre-loved bargains
The Retail Hub has four rooms packed with pre-loved items in good condition at affordable prices. View our range of furniture; working electricals; men’s and women’s clothes and accessories, childrenswear; and home entertainment goods, including books, CDS, records and DVDs.
All sales play a vital role in fundraising for the hospice which needs to raise more than £2 million a year to fund patient care.

What can I donate to the Retail Hub?
Donations are very much appreciated at our Donation Centre, adjacent to the Retail Hub, which is open Monday - Friday between 10am – 2pm. *Please note, whilst coronavirus restrictions are in place limiting our staff and volunteers, we can’t accept donations outside these hours.
* working electricals (such as TVs, radios, speakers)
* men’s and women’s clothing and accessories (including jewellery, shoes, bags)
* good quality childrenswear
* home entertainment goods (books, records, DVDs and CDs)
We regret we aren’t able to accept children’s toys and baby equipment due to space constraints. Also, we do not accept large white goods, IT and printers. We do not accept bric-a-brac.
All items must be of a sellable quality please. As a small charity it often costs us money to dispose of items we cannot sell. We need to be able to put all your lovely donations straight on to display ready to sell and raise funds for patient care. The only exception is clothing and textiles which we can accept in all grades; those not suitable for re-wearing can be ragged and re-purposed.
You can donate to support the hospice at one other business outlet. Visit Unit 1, Hoyle Mill Lane, Thurlstone, Pensitone, S36 9PZ, Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 9am to 12pm. They will gladly accept anything except beds and settees. Thanks to Alan Friggens for generating further monthly funds for the hospice from sundry items we don't sell at the hub.
Collections of furniture
We are happy to arrange to collect larger items of furniture in good condition for sale at the Retail Hub. Please note, all sofas and chairs must still have their fire safety label attached for us to sell them. Please call 01226 240908 to discuss a large piece of furniture and arrange a collection.
We are accessible to wheelchair users with a ramped access and disabled toilet available.
We accept payment by cash and card, including contactless payments.
We do not have a café on site, but there are several nearby. Please contact them direct for opening times and Covid-19 status and arrangements or visit their Facebook pages and websites below:
Covid 19 – keeping you safe
Please wear a mask when visiting the Hub (unless you have an exemption). Please observe two metre social distancing while in store. Antibacterial gel is available at our entrance. We have stringent stock management and cleaning regime in place to provide a Covid-secure shopping environment for our supporters and staff.
The Retail Hub will always follow Government guidelines regarding the opening of non-essential shops. When the shop is closed the donation centre is closed too. Please do not leave donations outside.
Other hospice charity shops?
We closed our High Street charity shops due to Covid-19 pressures in 2020 as they were no longer viable in raising funds for the hospice. We’ll keep you posted on any future hospice retail developments. Our one-stop Retail Hub was opened by long-term volunteer Judy Holling in December 2020.

The Retail Hub was officially opened by long-term Barnsley Hospice volunteer and fundraiser Judy Holling of Dodworth on December 7th 2020. It is run by a dedicated team of staff and volunteers. All proceeds from sales support the running costs of Barnsley Hospice. Like all hospices, the hospice is a charity and must raise money to cover the cost of providing care and support free-of-charge to patients with terminal and life-limiting conditions and their families. Thank you.
