Title: Wanting to donate toys to a good cause.
Post by: cjacobs on February 12, 2015, 12:23:09 PM
Hi there,

My husband and I are having a clear out of my little ones toys all in good condition. Rather than donate to charity shops this time round I have heard of refuges and other needy areas I could donate to. I was wondering if anybody knew of any in the stockport area and how I would go about donating or if you had a contact number to contact?

Many Thanks!

Marple and District Womens Institute are collecting stuff for Stockport Women's Refuge. I expect they would be interested.

Contact - Catherine  marpleanddistrictwi@gmail.com.

She's also collecting curtains, bedding, pots and pans and baby stuff such as disposable nappies and babywipes as the refuge has a resident with a new born baby and 2 pregnant ladies about to give birth.

If anyone else has anything suitable please contact Catherine. There but for the grace of god go the rest of us.
