Donate items

Thank you for your support and for the donations that have been dropped off at our shop – they were fantastic!

Our collection service is now back up and running and we can now collect donations from your home.

To arrange a collection please call us on 0141 339 7320 and we will book you in for our next available collection slot.

In an effort to keep everyone safe when we reopen to the public, we are not able to accept donations dropped off at our shop. To prevent the spread of the coronavirus donations need to be isolated for 72 hours (3 days) and due to the limited space at the shop we can only do this at our warehouse.

If you would like to find your pre-loved baby items a loving new home, and help a great cause at the same time, then you are in the right place!

What happens to the items after you have donated them to us?

Once we have received donations, and they have been safely quarantined, our BB&B team get to work checking them over, making sure they are complete and safe.

Each item is checked, and double checked, then our team log the item and either put it in our Starter Pack storage facility or for individual sale in our shop.

Around 90% of the items we receive are allocated to our Starter Packs, any over stock we have is put up for sale in our shop. All funds received from items sold in our shop go straight back into our organisation!

All donations, big and small, make a huge difference to the families we work with. Without your donations we would not be able to provide our free Starter Packs to families.

Thank you for your support!
