The Lighthouse Furniture Project have teamed up with Ingatestone Library to set up a new community initiative focusing on unwanted toy donation for children in Essex.
What we are asking for is do you have any unwanted toys that can be donated to a new home?
Between Monday 4 November 2019 - Saturday 30 November 2019, Ingatestone Library will be taking toy donations on behalf of The Lighthouse Furniture Project.
The toys will then be redistributed to Basildon Women's Aid (Refuge), Alternative Trust East London and other good causes.
