Important Delivery Information
Please be aware that as a charity staffed mainly by volunteers, sometimes we are unable to deliver things as quickly as other larger online stores. So if your order is urgent, please email us after your purchase and where possible we’ll attempt to help you.
Ordering & Payments
Internet Orders: The quickest and safest way to pay; all payments are processed by a secure gateway, and a wide variety of credit and debit cards are accepted from across the world.
Telephone: Call 023 9239 3988 quoting the items title and code. Our office is open Tuesday to Saturday between 11am to 4pm.
Mail Order: Simply download our current price list, print it out and send us your order along with payment and the correct postage for your country. Postal prices for each item can be seen on the respective product page. If you are unable to download the price list we can also email it or post it to you. For mail orders we can only accept UK Postal Orders and cheques from UK Banks.
Security: If you wish to send cash please use recorded or registered post. We will not accept or process orders if you post or email us your credit or debit card details.
While no one likes paying high prices for postage, we need to ensure your order is delivered quickly and safely. Plus as a Christian charity we think it’s important to be totally transparent about how delivery fees are calculated, which is…
- The item price, which always remains the same regardless of where you are.
- £0.50 for strong secure packaging, such as padded airbags.
- Postage Costs. These are defined by the UK Post Office as the weight of each item, its size (‘Large Letter’ or ‘Small Parcel’) and destination.
- Delivery Type as in ‘Signed for’ or ‘Unsigned’.
- Sometimes it is cheaper to ship orders over 2kg as multiple packages. This saves the Charity money. Please advise if you are NOT OK with this. You have the opportunity to opt out of this at the checkout, before payment.
Dispatch, Shipping Options and Time Scales
Most UK orders are dispatched within one week using standard 2nd class but you can select ‘Signed for’ delivery options at the checkout. After dispatch, delivery times are usually within 3-5 working days. If your delivery has not arrived within that time, please contact us.
Non UK orders are also dispatched within one week and usually by surface mail but faster options are available such as ‘Signed for’, and can be selected at the checkout.
‘Signed for’ options are much more expensive but does provide you with more secure and faster delivery times. After dispatch, Europe can take up to 5 working days, and world-wide up to 7 working days. In the rare event it has been confirmed your purchase has gone astray, we can re-send ‘Signed for’ items (subject to stock levels) within 48 hours.
For non – ‘Signed for’ orders add 2-3 days on top of the ‘Signed for’ delivery times. You must also be aware that if a non – ‘Signed for’ delivery goes wrong, we have to apply to the Post Office before we can re-deliver your purchase – a process that can take several weeks.
If your purchase is a rare item, we strongly suggest you use the ‘Signed for’ option.
Consumer Contracts Regulations (2014)

On safe return of the goods to us, you will receive a full refund of your order, plus the full cost of returning the goods to us.
After 14 days any requests for refunds will be considered on a case by basis and not all requests for refunds will be honoured. If we choose to offer a refund after the 14 day period it will be your responsibility to pay for the return of the goods. You will only receive the cost of your original order.
