Thank you to everyone who has generously donated their unwanted items to us – you are amazing. Our stockroom is now full and closed to general donations. We are only seeking the items listed below. Please only donate those items you would give to your fussiest friend – our items are a gift from one family to another. Donations can be dropped off at our stockroom on Tuesdays during the school term time, 9.30am – 12noon / 7.45-9.45pm. Please do not leave any donations outside the stockroom when we are closed:
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!
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.
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 group for 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.
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.
That in 2017, we gave out over £640,000 of beautiful quality items to over 1000 families. All thanks to our wonderful donors who decided to gift their kit to Little Village.
