Pre-loved Toy Appeal

Date: Monday 13 November to Monday 11 December 2023

Venue: Recycling centres in Belfast

Category: Christmas


Donate your pre-loved toys to our appeal and help families in need at Christmas.

We've teamed up with East Belfast Mission and other charities to give a helping hand coming up to Christmas.

From Monday 13 November to Monday 11 December, you can bring your pre-loved toys to our recycling centres. We are collecting toys, games, books, DVDs and other items suitable for children of all ages.

Donated items and any box or packaging must be clean, complete, working, and in good condition.

Examples of what you could donate to our toy appeal

You can donate:

  • bikes, trikes, scooters
  • ride-on toys
  • go-karts
  • toy kitchens and work benches
  • doll houses
  • dolls and prams
  • jigsaws, puzzles and board games (must be complete)
  • figures and figurines
  • Lego
  • books and DVDs

What we do with the toys

We'll distribute the toys to three charity organisations. Our charity partners in 2023 are:

  • Save the Children
  • Barnardo's
  • St Vincent de Paul

They'll use donated items to help families in need by:

  • selling some items at affordable prices in charity shops
  • giving other items to families in greatest need
