Clothes, footwear & accessories: a hand-painted jacket

We love it when our sellers get creative. Even more so when it’s in aid of charity! Snap up this one-of-a-kind jacket and support the seller in raising money for Bone Cancer Research Trust. A fantastic futuristic portrait has been hand-painted onto this size 14 jacket to make it a really individual piece, and the proceeds will go to the seller’s school’s chosen charity, Bone Cancer Research Trust. If you’re in the market for a new jacket, you can find loads of choice on Gumtree.

Bikes: a vintage Raleigh Chiltern bike

Why not consider this brilliant vintage Raleigh Chiltern if you’ve been on the hunt for a new bike? Not only is it in great condition, it also comes complete with a prop stand, pannier rack and tyre pump. But the best thing about this bike? All proceeds from the sale are being donated to the Rotherham Hospice – so you can crack on with your commute knowing that you’ve supported a good cause. If this one’s already whizzing around town, you’ll find a huge range of secondhand bikes on Gumtree.

Garden & patio: perennial plants

These plants are certainly flourishing. You could get your hands on loads of hardy varieties from beautiful hydrangeas to unusual calceolaria plants with all the money you give being donated to a good cause. If you don’t live close to this seller, why not take a look at the amazing array of plants on Gumtree?

Home & furniture: a vintage Ercol children’s chair

This vintage chair is a Good Find if you don’t mind a bit of sanding – it’s a “barn find” so it’s probably been in storage for a while. But just imagine the possibilities now that it’s been rediscovered! With a bit of sanding down and a glug of teak oil, this little chair from the sought-after brand Ercol could have a whole new lease of life. The generous sellers on our platform list some amazing items to raise money for charity and this is a great example. Someone might have already started work on this one, but there’s an incredible selection of chairs to discover on Gumtree.

Sports & leisure: a team for a charity football match

Some charity listings ask you to donate your money while some ask for your time. That’s exactly what this Bristol-based football team needs – they’re looking for a friendly group to play against in a charity football match. If you think you’ve got what it takes, round up your teammates for a game of “fun and fitness” – no sliding tackles, please! Don’t worry if you’ve missed this match, you can find plenty of football teams to join or play against on Gumtree.

Cars & vehicles: cars in any condition

It was the phrase “we need any car – dead or alive” in this ad that made us stop and think for a moment. Once we’d got over flashbacks from the movie series Cars, we realised this ad is from a Guildford-based motor project that’s looking for vehicles to collect. These are used to help teach young people about mechanics, car maintenance and MOT testing. No matter what condition your car is in, the motor project will consider collecting it for free and handling the DVLA paperwork for you. If you’re not in Guildford but do have a scrap car that’s going a little rusty, why not take look at the “cars wanted” section of Gumtree?
