Donate items

We have been inundated with donations over the last few weeks! As a result we have run out of storage space and need to close our collections until we move over to our hub in August. Thanks to your wonderful donations we now have enough stock to support families over the next 6-8 weeks, how amazing is that?

If you would like to book a collection from August contact us.

We kindly ask that all items donated to us are in a usable condition.

At the moment we are also unable to accept donations of large furniture, books, games, teddies or toys.

If we require more of one item for our packs, and less of another we will update our social media. The items we require are dictated mainly by the referrals we receive and therefore can change at short notice.

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 Newborn Essentials Bundle storage facility or for individual sale in our shop.

Around 90% of the items we receive are allocated to our Newborn Essentials Bundles, 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 Newborn Essentials Bundles to families.

Thank you for your support!
