Toy Gift Appeal

January 2024

We are delighted to be collecting and distributing preloved toys in partnership with Hackney Libraries in January 2024, once again.

Donate good quality children’s toys and books at all Hackney Libraries between 3-24 January 2024, and we’ll find good homes for them with charities and children’s projects.

A fantastic Hackney Council project.

Please check the addresses of the libraries that are taking the donations below. 

Toy Gift Appeal

January 2024

Every year we hold a Toy Gift Appeal in partnership with Hackney Council.  Good condition and complete toys and books are very welcome as donations through Hackney Libraries.  Everything will be sorted and given to local charities and organisations, for their use or for giving to local families.  Please see the poster for more information.

Donate your unwanted or unused toys.

Our annual Toy Gift Appeal runs from 3 January to 24 January 2024.

We give the donated toys to charitable organisations and educational centres, for children across the borough.

You can donate toys in good or excellent condition including:

  • books and other educational materials
  • jigsaw puzzles and puzzles
  • board games
  • balls
  • unopened paints and pens
  • suitable electronic and electric play items
  • suitable baby play items
  • bikes, scooters, and skateboards
  • teddies and soft toys
  • costumes (but not regular clothes)

All toys must be clean and in a reusable condition. Costumes must be clean, wearable and undamaged.
