Toys and English Books to Donate

Question

I have a ton of toys (soft toys, lego, Playmobil, dress up constums and more) that I would like to donate to recognised charity and a few boxes of childrens and adults books in English. I want to get rid of everything together as I am clearing the house.

Do you know of a charity that would pick them up as I have no car.

Try contacting local kindergartens and any local crèches. Ask your local schools and libraries if they are interested in any English books.

I would endorse the first response absolutely. My local library will gladly collect books if they are in good condition and I regularly donate to them.
That said, I'm an avid reader and always on the lookout for new material. I would collect your adult books and pass them on to the library or the charity sale at Stonemanor when I have read them.
If that works for you my email address is kasseistamper AT yahoo DOT co DOT uk. TIA

Hi Georgiana,

If you would like to give away children books (for age - 6-10 year olds) I would be interested in them. I have kids who go to Flemish school and i try to teach them English at home through books.

Thanks for your replies. Oxfam is going to collect everything so the issue is sorted out for me.
