Little Village Camden
Wishlist January 2020

All our items are gifts from one family to another. Please only bring us items that you think a friend would be delighted to receive. Thank you!


Step 1. Check the wishlist - Do we need it?

In every site, space is at a premium so we run a monthly ‘wishlist‘ highlighting the priority items we need. Some months, when people have been particularly generous, we may not be able to accept the items you have. If you can, hold on to them because we’ll probably need them soon!

Step 2. Is it safe?

Safety is our number one concern. Please only bring us items in full working order, ideally complete with an instruction manual if needed. Check out our safety standards here. To donate a cot, please watch this short film, and here’s one if you want to donate a buggy.

Step 3. Is it great quality?

Ask yourself, would my friend be delighted to be gifted these items? Please only bring us items that fit that bill. That means clean, unstained clothes; toys with all parts and in full working order; and equipment with all the screws and an instruction manual.

Step 4. Bring it to one of our drop in sessions

We are largely run by volunteers so can’t offer a collection service, but if you’re struggling to reach us, you can ask for help from our volunteer community on the local facebook page for Wandsworth, Camden and Southwark. Other people have clubbed together so that one person brings donations from a group of friends. If you have a high demand item we can usually arrange for you to drop off at other times.

Step 5. Enjoy a big thank you!

And if you’d like a hug of gratitude from one of our volunteers, please sort your items into age categories, bring instruction manuals, and bag up toys into packs. You’ll make our day – and you’ll be saving us precious volunteer time and helping us to reach even more families.

Opening times

Little Village Camden is open for you to drop off donations every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday during term time, between 9am and 1pm.

Did you know...

That in the first three months of this year, we gave out over £150,000 worth of beautiful quality items to the 291 families who visited us at Little Village Camden. That amounted to more than 19,400 individual items. All thanks to our wonderful donors who decided to gift their kit to Little Village.
