We welcome donations from our local community of used toys, games and puzzles in good condition. We believe strongly that toys should be in children’s hands, not in landfill. We thank you for considering us when clearing out your toys and providing endless play opportunities for our community.
We cannot accept toys from the following categories due to hygiene and safety reasons:
- Soft toys
- Bath toys
- Teething toys
- Sleep Toys eg. Mobiles, items that attach to cots etc.
- Large ‘baby’ items eg. walkers, bouncers etc.
- Items that are difficult to transport in a standard car
- Toys with broken or missing parts
- Dress Ups
Donations are reviewed by committee members to see if they are suitable for the Berwick Toy Library’s current needs. We have limited storage facilities so unfortunately not all toys can be added to our borrowing collection, they will be forwarded on to local charities where appropriate. We encourage you to email us a photo of the toys at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can let you know what we are in need of and what would be suitable.
Toy donations can be dropped off at any session (See session times under Info- Session Times) however, at this stage they cannot be collected from people’s houses. Please fill in the online Donations agreement below before dropping off your toys (or we can give you a hardcopy when you arrive).
