Have some toys in very good condition/ never been used and want to donate them somewhere, thinking for parents who have very little to spend this Christmas, rather than buying second hand they just get them for free,I've googled but can't find much info, I'm in central Scotland

Thanks

I volunteer in a food bank local to me (way down south) but we take donations such as the ones you are talking about & then our clients can have a look through when they come in for food. Might be worth asking at your local food bank perhaps?

I saw a Christmas toys donation basket in our local library today. Maybe put them in there, if you have one.

Salvation Army could be worth a try too.

Our local newspaper always do a christmas toy appeal. Maybe contact your local papers. Or what about your local womans aid.

My first thought was a Food Bank, as someone I know used one recently, and she said the had a table of random things (baby stuff)
