Donating your items

** Please note, Little Village is shut over half term so there will not be any sessions during the week of the 23rd October. See you after that!**

Thanks for your interest in donating to Little Village. We’ve been overwhelmed by the generosity of our donors since we launched at the start of 2016. In our first 3 months of operation we received half a tonne of clothes alone!

Little Village is a gift from one family to another: our bundles are gifts, not hand-outs, so please use our simple rule of thumb: if you’d give the item to a friend, then we’ll take it.

If you can wash and sort clothes into age categories, and bring instruction manuals, or print them out from the internet, you will almost certainly get a huge hug from our volunteers, whose time you’ve just saved!

We are lucky now to have our own space. Although we are highly skilled at cramming a lot in, our HQ isn’t a tardis, so we need to ensure we are using our space to house the items most needed by other local families.

So before you donate, please take the following 3 steps. The links in the blue menu box on this page will help you do that:

  • Check whether we need it
  • Check your donations meet our quality and safety standards
  • Check when you can drop off your donations
