Following on from the truly skint thread I bet there are lots of us with things we have that we would be prepared to send to those who are really struggling. I don't want to insult anyone by offering things but at the same time I want to help if I can. I have boys clothes and shoes up to age 5 and black school trousers age six. Pm me. Anyone else have anything

Do we not have the 'For Free' topic any more then?

RandomMess Wed 16-May-12 21:46:03

Those who are in need, what is it you would really benefit from now clothes/shoes wise and roughly where do you live?

hey there is a "for free" topic you could pop this into, was designed for this very thing

tis a good idea

Givingupmyjob Wed 16-May-12 21:48:45

Oh sorry, didn't know about about the for free topic

MikeLitoris Wed 16-May-12 22:00:52

I have a load of baby girl stuff. Newborn up to 1yr. I also have some size 10 maternity bits.

The dc are due to have a sort out on the weekend. If they have have anything they have out grown I'll update.

I don't mind posting or can be picked up from central cardiff.

Randommess shoes seem to come up a lot. I have no idea how to move this and so am leaving it here for now. Might be more traffic too.

Patrickjane Wed 16-May-12 22:02:03

I have some 3-4 boys summer clothes and shoes, size 9.
Will look for for free topic

Lawrene8 Wed 16-May-12 22:02:54

I have bots clothes up to age 5. Also grey school trousers age 5 still with tags on. Happy to post clothes to anyone in UK

Lawrene8 Wed 16-May-12 22:03:16

Boys clothes evengrin

RandomMess Wed 16-May-12 22:04:33

What's always difficult is that you want stuff to go to people who need it, rather than people who want it biscuit

Same with freecycle I resist putting stuff on there like clothes etc because I'd rather it went to people who need than those who will just sell it on.

Wonder if the foodbanks will eventually do clothes and shoe banks, wonder if the health visitors would pass things on - but again they deal with specific parents rather than those that may just be stoney broke!

LewisFan Wed 16-May-12 22:04:39

also having a sort out soon - will have boys clothes and "stuff" which I'll happily post in the UK

I'll be more specific when I have sorted it and know what's there smile

3 pairs boys summer shorts age 3
2 pairs boys summer shorts age 2

Will post for free or collect from Nottingham

I recently took some baby clothes and equipment to my local Surestart Centre. Staff assured me that local families in need would benefit from it. Good to give back through them as I have accessed many free services there over the last few years.
Maybe try Surestart near you?

There is also freecycle for items ( not mn) that you could give to ppl in your local area, anything from a tennis raquet to a double bed ! it is a really good idea.

Here is the link to the main home page:-

uk.freecycle.org/

Virgil Wed 16-May-12 22:14:21

Free cycle is a fantastic idea gone a bit wrong IMO. In my local area it is full of traders who take anything and sell it on eBay.

Springforward Wed 16-May-12 22:21:28

Ooh, how do I fing the For Free thread? We're just about to do a massive sort out and I'd really like to use it, if someone might find whatever we've got useful.

Springforward Wed 16-May-12 22:22:04

Find, not fing.

thefirstmrsrochester Wed 16-May-12 22:26:44

2 'shortie' wetsuits. Age 5-6 and 7-8.

YourFanjoIsNotAHandbag Wed 16-May-12 22:30:21

Boys clothes aged 6-7 including school trousers (grey)
Light blue school shirts aged 11-12 boys and 12-13 girls
Plus a bag full of boys 12 yo clothes, tshirts, jumpers etc some of them new with tags on because ds1 doesn't like them.
