I have a few bags with women's clothes (mine) and baby's clothes, as well as some toys and stuff like towels, cotton, one pack of newborn nappies I bought by mistake, two backpacks, etc. It's not a massive amount of things, but I need someone to collect it as I don't have a car (I would need quite a few trips on public transport to take everything).
I called Refuge Lambeth, they got my number but didn't call back. I tried to call the refuge in Lewisham but apparently the number on the website is wrong. I'm in Greenwich, so it looks like these are the nearest ones.
I know I could just take everything to the charity shop on the corner, but I think it would be more useful in a refuge, as there is a mix of very new clothes and toys, and used stuff (that they probably won't be able to sell...)
So, does anyone know what else I could do? Do you know anyone from a London refuge who could collect it? Any other suggestion of another place where my stuff could be useful?
I donated a load of stuff to Eaves, who are a great charity and are I think based in Stockwell. They weren't able to collect from me, but I'm in East London. Since you're much closer they might be able to arrange something.
