I've got a few bags of old toys (games, puzzles, cars etc) and possibly cuddily toys to give to charity - is there anywhere in East Dulwich where they can be given to? I'm aware many charity shops don't accept these things nowadays...

Any advice gratefully received... Thanks.

That's a great option.

King's College Children's A&E are also accepting donations.

I'd recommend taking any unwanted toys to Kings Hospital. We've dropped several bags loads over the past few years to the children's A&E dept and they are happy to take them. Having had to take our child there a few times, having some toys to take their mind off other things when they're in discomfort is a real benefit. FYI they will not take soft toys like teddies.
