How you can help

We are extremely grateful for any help we receive, whether it be donating items, time or money. It all makes a significant difference to the families in our local areas.

We are currently in need of spring and summer clothes, thank you.

Donating Items

We are grateful for donations of good quality clothing for babies and children up to the age of 4. We kindly ask that the clothing is cleaned and is in excellent condition.

Please see the list below for items we can accept.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page for up to date information on any items we are in particular need of.

We can accept donations on the first and second Thursday of each month between 10 and 11am at The Stables. If you are unable to make these days then please get in touch with us either through this website or on our Facebook page and we can arrange a way to help you.


If you would like to volunteer with the Baby Bank, we would love to hear from you! There are many different ways you can volunteer with us, including sorting through donations and making up gift packages for families at the Stables on a Thursday morning, ironing some of the lovely clothes we receive in your own home or making deliveries.

If you are interested in volunteering with us then please get in touch on our contact page or send us a message via our Facebook page.
