Toy gift appeal

Donate your pre-loved toys and electrical items

Think you’ll have toys and electrical items you could give to others after the festive period?

We’re running our Toy Gift appeal and Zero Waste Hub to make sure the items you don’t need can go to a new home.

Our Toy Gift Appeal gifts unwanted toys to children in the borough through charitable organisations.

You can donate your pre-loved toys between Thursday 2 and Wednesday 23 January 2020.

We’ll also be hosting a Zero Waste Hub, our re-use and repair popup, on 26 January, where you can donate items you don’t need, take items you do and repair electrical items, textiles and bicycles for free.

We’re running the event in partnership with Forest Recycling Project, Hackney Fixers, TRAID and Dr Bike.

Come to the Redmond Community Centre, N4 2HF, at 11am-3pm on Saturday 26 January.
