Toy donations needed

Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, each year we raise thousands of pounds at community events all from donated items such as soft toys, books, games, toys, and puzzles.

Do you have items to donate?

Firstly, thank you so much for thinking of our charity!

We are happy to receive your donations throughout the year. We would especially love items such as:

  • Children’s books
  • Puzzles
  • Toys
  • Games
  • Also larger play items such as dolls houses, bikes, scooters, garden toys…etc

To help our wonderful group of volunteers who sort and get items ready for our fundraising events, please only donate items that are brand new or in ‘good as new’ condition.

Where to donate

All donated items can be dropped off in the large green collection bin at the back of Unit 15, Grove Business Estate, Waltham Road, SL6 3LW. 

To arrange a collection for larger items, please get in touch with one of our volunteers, Richard Johnson, by email at Alternatively, please contact the Fundraising Team at

Need our help?

The word hospice should not seem scary and getting support from us doesn’t have to mean a child’s death is imminent. Helping to enrich the lives of the children and their families is at the heart of our service, our end of life and bereavement support is just a part of what we do.

Our children’s hospice service covers the whole of Berkshire and into surrounding counties. If you think your child may be eligible for our services, please do get in touch.

We’re delighted to have received a grant from Marks and Spencer as part of their Gifts that Give campaign this Christmas. This wonderful donation will help fund lots of festive fun and activities for children and their siblings we support.

The grant was all thanks to M&S teaming up with Neighbourly Foundation to give donations to 1,000 small charities and community groups in the UK and Ireland.

Spread some Christmas kindness ⭐️

We were privileged to provide end of life care for beautiful baby Joshua and his family at our children’s hospice.

Joshua was just 7 weeks old when he sadly died.

For our Christmas appeal this year his parents, Emma and Peter Lowe, bravely share his story. They hope in doing so that they can “spread kindness to other families who will face tragedy like us. We want to make sure these families are not alone and will have the invaluable support given to us by Alexander Devine.”

Your kindness this Christmas can help us be there for more precious children like Joshua:
