DONATION DOs & DONTs PLEASE READ

CURRENTLY FULL AND NOT ACCEPTING: TRAVEL SYSTEMS/MOSES BASKETS & STAND/COTS/BABY BATHS/CRIBS

Please help us by doing the following:

Wash
All clothing should be freshly laundered, if items have been in storage please consider refreshing before bringing.

Sort

We ask that all items are checked to ensure they are complete, and in working order we cannot pass on broken toys or toys missing pieces.

Prams & Larger items
Please drop us a message regarding prams or larger items before you make a trip over to us to confirm we will accept them. Prams need to be free of rust and free from mould, if they have been in storage for a long time we ask that you give prams a clean before you bring them

And finally Would you pass it to a friend?
We pride ourselves on passing on items in great condition. It makes all the difference to the family on the receiving end. If you are not sure whether your donation is suitable or not, a good test is to ask yourself if you would give it to the children of a good friend? If the answer is yes, we are happy to receive it. But if you are unsure, drop us a message to confirm, this saves you a trip to us which possibly ends in rejection on the doorstep.

Suitcases/plastic storage tubs/ items in transported in boxes – please bag donations instead
