Whether you're interested in donating your old toys or making a financial donation we are always grateful for the support we receive from the local community
Have your kids outgrown toys that are no longer being loved but taking up space in your home?
We always welcome the donation of quality toys and children's books in good condition. If you have toys to donate please get in touch by email with a photo of the toys and we can let you know if we have room in the toy library for a new addition.
Please ensure donated toys are:
in good working condition
durable and easy to clean (no soft toys or dolls)
board and picture books suitable for ages 0-8 are welcome to add to our free library bookshelf
easy to transport in a car
are complete with all pieces (we sometimes accept individual pieces such as Fisher Price Little People, ELC figurines, Duplo etc where we can use them with our existing sets)
Once confirmed by email donated toys can be dropped off during our regular opening hours or we may be able to assist with a contactless collection for local donations.
We'd love to hear from you!
