Declutter, recycle and donate to Kidney Care UK

Donate your unwanted clothes and raise funds for Kidney Care UK with an iCollectClothes collection. Have long overdue clear out, raid your wardrobe and declutter those cupboards.

Simply book it online and leave your donation outside your door to be picked up!

Set up a JustGiving page

Simply share your story by setting up a JustGiving page, a fast, easy way for you to do your own digital fundraising. People can then donate, leave you a supportive message, and the money, including any Gift Aid, gets sent to Kidney Care UK automatically.

Become a #KidneyWarrior

If you’re thinking of a more physical challenge to raise funds, why not become a #KidneyWarrior and let your imagination go wild! Set your route, your challenge and do it your way to help support kidney patients and their families.

Facebook Fundraiser

Are you celebrating a big occasion? Whether it’s your birthday, anniversary or kidneyversary, set up a Facebook Fundraiser, so your friends and family can celebrate with you by making a donation to Kidney Care UK.

Whether you're an individual, school or business your old ink cartridges can help! Recycle4Charity provides a free, easy and environmentally friendly way for you to recycle your empty printer inkjet cartridges whilst raising funds for kidney patients and their families.

Host an event

Host a party to support Kidney Care UK. A great way to get together (even if it’s virtually!) with friends, family and colleagues to have fun and raise awareness of how kidney disease affects thousands of people throughout the UK.

We can send you everything that you’ll need to host a brilliant event!

Leave a legacy

A gift in your Will helps us be there for kidney patients today and into the future. A third of our charitable activity is paid for by legacy gifts; without them we simply wouldn’t be able to support as many people with kidney disease as we do.

Recycle used stamps and foreign currency

Collect and donate used stamps or old and foreign coins through our partner xChange Master. It's easy and free to send us your stamps and a great way to support us.
