Without in any way trying to dissuade donations to the organisations already mentioned, Hestia is a domestic abuse centre, among other things, that operates in Wandsworth and elsewhere. They've (sadly) been around for 40 years and seem a good place for clothes and toys. I gave them a big bag of baby clothes to them last week, and they'd be very happy to receive donations. They can't always take things and around the holidays are flooded with toys, but would be grateful for clothes pretty much any time, and happy for toys much of the rest of the year. info@hestia.org or 0208 871 2664. They kindly collected from me, in Balham.

Hi

At this time of year the Salvation Army is always in need of toys and baby clothes, for their work with disadvantaged families. Items can be taken to the shop at 199 Wandsworth Huigh street between 10 & 5.30 Mon to Sat. You should specify that they are for the "Family Hampers" when you drop them off. The list so far extends to around 180 families.

I know this is an old thread so just wondering if anyone had any current local suggestions for where to donate baby clothes? I've just had a big clear out! Thanks

A new charity in Tooting has just launched recently. Sort of a food bank for baby gear. Here's a link to a local newspaper article with all the details:

Yes I would also suggest Little Village - seems like a great idea: www.littlevillagehq.com

Congratulations to the local mums who've set it up.
