Please help us by doing the following:
All clothing should be freshly laundered. If clothing has been in storage please consider washing it again before donating to us it makes all the difference to the family that receives it, we do not have a washing facility therefore these clothes will be recycled.
If you have a lot of items to donate, it would really help us if items are sorted into clothes and toys in separate bags. Also checked to ensure all pieces are complete and in good condition we cannot pass on broken toys or toys missing pieces. At the moment we are receiving a high volume of broken toys which are not useful to us and cost us to dispose of. Weare no longer able to accept donations in cardboard boxes we will need to refuse them due to hygiene reasons.
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 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 still unsure drop us a message to confirm, this saves you a trip to us which possibly ends in rejection on the doorstep.
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 as again we do not have sufficient washing facilities to do this and therefore will need to reject them on the doorstep.
