    I belong to the WI and before Christmas we contributed to the British Heart Foundation by donating unwanted, or broken jewellery. Not just the good stuff, costume was welcomed too ;)

    When I Googled to see if they were still collecting, I discovered that the Alzheimer's society have a similar scheme. https://www.alzheimers.org.uk/info/20014/make_a_donation/164/donate_old_jewellery

    No surprises as to where Mum's no longer used baubles are shortly to be sent!

    I am assuming that the Alzheimer's scheme is similar to BHF's, whereby anything resaleable is sold. Broken or damaged fine jewellery gets sold as scrap - anything else is broken up for beads, findings etc. A Freepost bag can be requested or you can send Freepost to the given address.

    I thought I would just post this, as I cannot be the only one who is emptying property after a loved one has gone into residential care and has unwanted items that could be donated toraise funds.

    I signed up for this & have received 2 med sized addressed envelopes to send old costume jewellery (even broken) to help raise funds :)
