Donating to our Nearly New Sales

Donating to the Tiny Lives Nearly New Sale is a great way to have a clear-out, knowing that your items will be going to new homes and raising vital funds for vulnerable babies and their families on the RVI Neonatal Unit.

Sales are generally held 4 times a year, but are currently on hold due to COVID-19 restrictions. You can find out more about attending a Sale here. In the meantime, donations are sold via our eBay store.

At the moment, we are particularly looking for donations of boy’s clothes, ages 3 -8 and good quality soft toys.

Please click here to download a list of items that we do and do not accept for our Nearly New Sales. This saves your time and ours!

Where possible, designer items sell really well and help us to raise the most funds – if you have any baby/children’s clothes of the brands below going to waste, we’d be very grateful if you could consider donating them to us!

In addition, anything new with tags (even supermarket brands) will be a top-seller, and so will help us raise even more to support the Unit.
