How You Can Help

Thank you for your interest in helping us meet our aims of providing support to families in crisis in Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire. There are a few ways you can help.

Donate Items

All donations help us to make up the Bundles of Joy that we then distribute to local families.

We want the families we support to feel valued and cared for, so please make sure all donated items are clean and in good condition, toys are complete and in working order, and toiletries are unused. If in doubt, ask yourself, “would I want children in my own family to receive this?”

Donations are checked, sorted and laundered, cleaned as appropriate, ready to be assembled into bespoke bundles specifically tailored to the home where they are very much needed and always appreciated. Our team work very hard to ensure the right help is given to the right people at the right time.

Here is a list of much appreciated new or good quality items we are always in need of and very grateful for.

  • Toys
  • Books
  • Unused baby toiletries
  • Unused adult toiletries
  • Moses Baskets
  • Bouncy chairs 
  • Play Gyms 
  • Prams
  • Clothing (baby and child)
  • Blankets
  • Nappies
  • Used stair gates
  • Cots

Due to regulations, we have to say no thank you to the following

  • Car Seats and Booster Seats
  • Broken Equipment or Soiled Goods and Clothing
  • Any Mattresses
  • Breast Pumps - Unless Brand New and in Sealed Boxes
  • Bottles and Feeding Equipment - Unless Brand New and in Sealed Boxes
  • Any Electrical Items


You can contact us regarding a donation via email and social media, please click here to go to the Contact Us page. We endeavour to respond within 48 hours but during busy periods we may take longer, so please be patient – we will get back to you.

Donate Money

Some items such as stair gates, cribs, Moses baskets and cot mattresses, we need to buy from new. This is due to ensuring we comply with safe sleep and other health and safety regulations. All financial donations go a long way in helping us to provide these items for families in need and are gratefully received.

If you would like to make a donation to Bundles of Joy, please do get in touch.

We have a Go Fund Me page to make it even easier for you to donate and support the work we do.

We can also provide publicity support for any fundraising events you would like to hold for us. Please get in touch with our team for more information.
