Donate Things for the library, share your time and expertise or pitch in with running costs so we can keep our Library of Things going!

We're always looking for Friends of the Shed!

Why donate to the shed?

We're passionate about encouraging re-use and reducing waste, and so it's important that we look to fill our library with pre-loved things from the community.

If you have an item, or items, you no longer need or want and think the community may want to borrow, we'd love to hear from you.

What are we after?

  • All sorts of useful items (in good condition)

We're talking DIY, outdoor games, gardening tools, stuff for the kids, party essentials, kitchen bits - and more!

As long as it's in good, working condition, we're likely to be keen. If it has its original packaging and / or instructions, even better!.

  • Electrical items, but not petrol/gas powered items

Items powered by electricity are fine, but we have decided not to carry stock that uses a combustion engine. Promoting sustainability and a reduced reliance on fossil fuels is part of our ethos, and electrical items are easier for us to manage and maintain.

What don't we need?

1. Items that are damaged or don't work correctly, beyond basic repair.

2. Large items of furniture or white goods. For example - Sofas / fridges / wardrobes.

3. Non-household items. We're not looking for any clothing or food, for example.

Other ways to donate...

The Letchworth Garden Shed is a Community Interest Company, so we are not for profit.

The income we receive from memberships and lending fees alone isn't nearly enough to fund our operations, so we are massively thankful to the people & groups who support the shed with funding, so we can do what we do!

If you'd like to make a donation, you can do so quickly and easily below via our online payment partner Stripe.

We are becoming increasingly aware that our BRILLIANT town is full of BRILLIANT people, that have skills and expertise that they are more than willing to share with our community. If you feel you are one of those people, please just give us a shout by clicking the email button below


If you'd like to discuss a funding or sponsorship opportunity with us, we'd love to head from you via email.



What does that mean you ask? Quite simply, you can choose an item from ever evolving wish list, you ping us the cash, we'll buy it, and it will forever be doing good things in the community in your name!

Click the button below, send us an email and we'll get the ball rolling.
