Please only bring us items that you’d be willing to give to a friend – we can’t give away incomplete items, or soiled and stained clothes.

We want our donation packs to feel like gifts to the families who receive them, so please ensure your donations are freshly laundered, and that all toys and equipment are cleaned.

Unfortunately we cannot accept car seats, mattresses or bottle teats. We are also unable to take very bulky items, due to current storage constraints. If you’re unsure about whether we’ll accept something you can email us at
