This is the preferred channel to use.  You will receive a formal acknowledgement and your donation or bequest can be organised in an efficient and formal manner.

NDSME aims to give a good home to all suitable donated or bequeathed items.  In the unlikely event that an item is not suitable for us we will be able to give advice and guidance as to how to pass on the item to a good home.

Please note that we are usually only able to accept items that have been donated unconditionally.
