Thank you for asking about making a donation to BabyBranches. There are many ways you can help us:
1) By making a donation of baby items - WE ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED TO DONATIONS. OUR STOREROOMS ARE FULL! WE'LL LET YOU KNOW ONCE THEY'RE OPEN AGAIN.
2) By spreading the word, distributing our posters and promoting our facebook and twitter
3) By making a financial donation to support our work
4) By becoming a Baby Branches volunteer
We are in constant need of good quality items for children up to the age of 5. Items we can accept as donations are listed here. If you don't have pre-loved baby items, why not bring us a packet of nappies or baby wipes?
These can be delivered to your local drop off point:
Morrisons - Riversway, Preston, PR2 2YN.
Open Monday - Saturday 7.00 - 23.00 and Sunday 10.00 - 17.00. Google map

If none of these are convenient, we can collect your donations. Please contact us
We want the world to know about BabyBranches! Tell your friends, family, work colleagues, kids friends mums, schools, health visitors, midwives, neighbours, even your cat about us.
If you are able to distribute our posters in your local area, that would be great. Please feel free to download from here, or contact us and we can send some printed copies to you in the post.
Sadly nothing comes for free, and even BabyBranches has expenses. We buy new mattresses for all the cots and moses baskets we distribute. We pay to clean all the clothes and fabrics we are donated. Even this website host needs to be paid!
If you are able to contribute financially, donations can be made via PayPal or by our QR code:
We promise that we will not use your details to sign you up for a mailing list or pester you for further donations.
If you are participating in a sponsored event and looking for a charity to raise money for, please consider us. Get in touch and we can work with you to provide publicity and maybe even a t-shirt!
We need you! There is always space for more people to join Baby Branches. If you have time to spare there are a number of ways you can help us. At the moment we are looking for volunteers to "Adopt a Donation Station" or for drivers who can assist our collection / delivery service.
