How do we do it ?

We RECYCLE unwanted new and used toys. 

With no government support we rely solely on the support of the public. We fundraise through events, online auctions, through financial donations and in-kind and TOY sales. Our main source of support is through DONATIONS of  toys collected  in Schools, work places and from private homes.

What do we do?

We accept all TOYS both new and used.

Toys can be donated at our Finsbury Park office on Mondays and Thursdays between 11.00 and 3.00  by prior arrangement. If you live in Islington we collect FREE of charge. If you would like us to collect please use the contact form or text us to arrange. If you can ask your friends and neighbours to collect TOYS at the same time we would be hugely grateful!

We are now collecting all your unwanted foreign coins. Please contact us if you have some to donate as we can change these up and put them towards the running of the project.

Every year in the UK over 20,000 children under the age of 18 experience the death of a parent – that is around 60 children and young people bereaved of a mother or father every day.

The TOY project provides basic support tools for children across the UK who have lost a family member or friend. These could be toys to use in play therapy to help children open up about their feelings or simply a teddy bear to comfort them at night.

In addition to our work supporting bereaved children we  provide toys to children in hospices, hospitals, refugee centres, nurseries, schools and vulnerable families. 

How can you help?

You can help in many ways. You can volunteer at events, you can donate financially, you can buy specific toys of need, you can hold your own fundraising event,  you can spread the word and you can donate new or used toys!

We pride ourself in our scheme where supporters can choose and  buy toys  on our Face Book page and send directly to the organisation in need.
